Dr. Mike Hogan to become Sparks Professor in Fall 2015
Starting in Fall 2015, Dr. Mike Hogan will be an Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of Rhetoric in the College of the Liberal Arts. The Sparks and other named professorships in the College recognize full professors who are leaders in their fields and have an exceptional record of publication, grants, awards, and citations. Among Dr. Hogan's many achievements are securing a National Endowment for Humanities Challenge Grant for the Center for Democratic Deliberation. That grant alone helped establish an endowment for that center that will sustain it into the future.
