Alumni Faculty & Staff Spotlight

The 2020 Homecoming Board's theme, for this year, is "Strengthen Our Roots, Strength In Your Roots," which emphasizes the fact that, as individuals, each of us possesses strength in our own identity, experience, and background. However, the strength of each of us as individuals comes from recognizing that we are each a part of a larger, collective body, and when we work towards this, we become stronger as a community. In that spirit, the Homecoming Board decided to highlight some of our faculty and staff alumni, who currently work at the university, as a means of returning to our roots and celebrating who we are as a university.
