College of Arts & Sciences
|More about me:
I am a comparative newcomer to Creighton, having signed on as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences in 2001. Prior to that, I had spent twenty-four wonderful years as an English language teacher at our sister school, Loyola University Chicago. Moving created some upheaval (doesn't it always?), but my wife and I are very happy in Omaha. Once again, God has blessed us with good colleagues and an opportunity to help others learn, even as we learn with them.
Megan and I have four children. This year, we can finally see "the light at the end of the tunnel" of college tuition payments!
|Writing these reflections:
Before becoming an administrator ("going over to the Dark Side," some
of my faculty colleagues would argue!), I spent much of my life in the classroom
talking and writing about texts: novels, poems, essays. In that work, I learned
that you discover what you think, as often as not, when you try to articulate
it for others. The Bible is as challenging, as multi-faceted, as fascinating
as any text you can name, and I hope that, in these reflections, I will learn
about it--both from the act of writing and from the responses that others
may offer in return.
