Moving to North Dakota State University

After a successful bid for tenure and seven years at a small Christian liberal arts college, I have the opportunity to move to a land-grant, student-focused research institution.  I will miss many great colleagues and students at Concordia but am looking forward to this new adventure. A big thank you to all who have helped me along the way!
