Dean John Pelesko recently penned a letter to the University of Delaware College of Arts and Sciences welcoming a diverse group of new professors to our university community. He acknowledged new leadership in the College, welcomed new chairs and directors and thanked the staff for supporting the mission of the College of Arts and Sciences and our University during this challenging chapter in UD's history. Dean Pelesko shared how he turns to our own John Munroe and his excellent history of the University of Delaware for a look back to other challenging chapters in our history where the future felt uncertain and overwhelming, specifically the chapters that cover UD during the second world war.
Take a moment to read Dean Pelesko's letter and look through the welcome booklet to learn more about our newest professors in the College of Arts and Sciences. The Department of History welcomes two professors this year, Associate Professor and Director of Museum Studies Ken Cohen and Assistant Professor Sonia Robles.
