Their book of poems is a testament to that. Published by Poetry Partners Press, 2014. The…

The Office of Alumni Relations counts 796 living CC graduates who have gone on to be professors, including 595 who are still at it today. As you might imagine, they are scattered all over the map, both literally and in terms of their areas of expertise. The Bulletin recently caught up with a half-dozen such folks (though we didn’t get to dine with any of them). Here’s a look at what they are…
