Dr. Mark Correll leads alumni trip to Germany

Dr. Mark Correll

It’s been a busy summer for Associate Professor of History Dr. Mark Correll. Not only is he chair of the department of history, political economy, geography and social studies, he’s also the newly appointed chair of SAU’s Faculty Senate, positions he’s had to prepare for while also co-planning and -leading an alumni trip to Germany. With Dr. Kim Bowen, and Steve Castle ’05, ’12 and Bekah (Barr ’13) Zraik from the alumni office, Dr. Correll led a diverse group of alumni (Classes ’66 to ’17) across Germany and through historic sites relevant to the Reformation. It was the first excursion of its kind and wonderful a opportunity for Dr. Correll to visit a country he loves. Meanwhile, as Senate Chair, he’ll help guide faculty promotion and sabbatical procedures, curriculum development and faculty handbook bylaws. “My hope is the Senate becomes an even more constructive voice within the university,” says Dr. Correll, “responding to SAU’s traditional place as an entrepreneurial institution. We ought to move decisively to do what’s best for the school.” Faculty, students and alumni alike are assuredly in good hands with Dr. Correll.
