This summer, Sheryl Friedley, professor of communication and associate chair, will step in as acting chair of communication. Friedley will replace Cindy Lont, who stepped down last semester after four years in the position. In the fall, Don Boileau will take over as acting chair for the 2003-04 academic year. The university will begin a national search for a permanent chair to start in fall 2004. The appointment of a new associate chair has not yet been decided.

In addition to these changes, Kathy Rowan will become the new graduate director, replacing Tim Gibson, who is on sabbatical for the 2003-04 academic year. Peter Pober will come on board as the new forensics director, and Christine Smith will be the basic course coordinator under the direction of Lisa Sparks.
