With the end of the spring 2014 semester, Cindy Gordon will leave her full-time faculty position as Basic Course Director and Lecturer, a position in which she performed brilliantly for five years.  We are sad to see Cindy go, but pleased that she will be able to use the time she is accustomed to spending evaluating our graduate student instructors and grading 3010 papers to pursue her many other interests.  And . . . though she is leaving the full-time position, she will not be gone long.  She is slated to come back in June to teach Nonverbal Communication.
