Koenig, associate professor of social welfare; Sanjay Mishra, associate professor of business; Town Peterson, distinguished professor of ecology and evolutionary biology; Antonio Simoes, professor of Spanish and Portuguese; Dale Urie, lecturer in humanities and Western civilization and European studies; and Nathan Wood, associate professor of history.
