Faculty News

Jennifer Burnham (Geography) was senior editor of a recently published Geological Society of America (GSA) Special Paper 490 titled "Mima Mounds: The Case for Polygenesis and Bioturbation." 

From the book's abstract: "This volume grew out of a symposium titled, "The origin of Mima mounds and similar micro-relief features: Multidisciplinary perspectives," and a similarly themed field trip, both held at the 2008 GSA Annual Meeting. The editors of this volume firmly believe that Mima (pimple) mounds, with a contentious explanatory history that has covered nearly two centuries, deserve a closer look.

"The clarifying introduction, six chapters, and extensive appendices (including a never before published paper by Roald H. Fryxell) are sure to both resolve questions and inspire debate."

As you know, preparations are getting underway for the Higher Learning Commission (230 S. LaSalle St., Suite 7-500, Chicago, Ill., 60604)  accreditation. One of the things we need to accomplish is an archive of all current faculty CVs.  Please email a copy of your current CV to  Steve Klien, Chair of Faculty Welfare Committee, at your earliest convenience.
