As the L. Richardson King Assistant Professor of Sociology, I will return to campus in the fall continuing my research scholarship in addition to continuing to develop new courses at the college.
The donors honored Dr. "Richie" King with this professorship out of appreciation for his thirty-eight year career in mathematics at the college characterized by his devotion to students and his development of sophisticated models for real-world issues in ecology. I had the privilege of meeting Professor King -- energetic, engaging, interested -- early this past week.
