The university archivist maintains the history of the campus. To this end, the archivist maintains a biographical file on all faculty and staff. Please send your CV or your Resume, and a portrait photograph, to Pat Maus at your convenience in either digital form or as a paper copy using campus mail. Add anything you wish to your file: publications, awards, service, travel, grants, research, hobbies, family — anything the researching public may be allowed to know of your career and interests.
If you have questions, please call or email Pat Maus.
