Congratulations to our 2017 Faculty Associate, Dr. Peter Nguyen, who is a tenured professor in the School of Social Work and the MSW program coordinator.

As part of the appointment, he will work on one or more projects that respond to needs within the division. In his application, Dr. Nguyen wrote that the multiple challenges facing higher education may create stress, but “they also offer opportunities for the university to be innovative and entrepreneurial.” He believes that “a concise, clear and transparent communication strategy is an essential component in continuing the path to excellence” and that “good communication promotes synergy and empowers people to work toward common goals.” The appointment is effective January 1, 2017 and is expected to continue through summer 2017.
