Frank Shipper of Management and Marketing, Teena Gorrow of Teacher Education, Jill Caviglia-Harris of Environmental Studies/Economics and Finance, Debra Webster of Nursing, Jennifer Cox of Communication Arts, Celine Carayon of History, Joyce Wiencek of Education Specialties, Sophie Wang of Mathematics and Computer Science, and John Wesley Wright of Music.
