There are those who say that a faculty member who takes on administrative duties has turned to The Dark Side. I would never say such a thing. Rich Grant is trading in his Physics faculty duties for a term as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Student Engagement. Roanoke College will benefit immensely from his leadership in a variety of areas directly involved in student development, including Experiential Learning, Career Services, the Writing Center, and the Center for Learning and Teaching. MCSP, on the other hand, will miss his leadership as Physics Coordinator. Students will miss his excellence in the classroom. Rich is a winner of the Roanoke College Exemplary Teaching Award and the Exemplary Service Award, one of the few faculty members who have won two of the college’s top awards. This makes it especially hard to see Rich become a Sith Lord. However, we wish Rich well in his new duties, and thank him for his service to students and Roanoke College. May the Force be with you, Rich!
