Faculty Celebrate 25 Years

Faculty

(L to R): Maria Ibarra, Risa Levitt, Betty Samraj, Peter Herman, and Andrew Wiese.

CAL faculty were recognized for their commitment to the College of Arts and Letters during a morning reception on the Arts and Letters 6th-floor patio on May 2.  

Dean Casper shared her gratitude and appreciation for the faculty members who have served the college.

Gifts were distributed and those in attendance shared reflections about their time during the past 25 (or more) years. Those serving 26-28 years were also celebrated on this day, since their 25-year celebrations were postponed due to the pandemic. 

A deep sense of gratitude is extended to all 15 faculty:
