Too Rude for Tenure?

13McCard_Victoria-web-125x168-125x150_0McCard’s not talking in public about her case, according to the terms of her agreement.

Native American/American Indian meet-and-greet

indiannative.Native American/American Indian Faculty, Staff, and Students are invited to come together for a meet and greet at 6pm on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 in room 107 Rackley building. John Sanchez, a member of the Nde Apache Nation, and College of Communications faculty member said the purpose of this meeting is just to find other American Indians who are also a part of the Penn State University family and to come together. Native American/ American Indians make up less than 1% of all people at Penn State University and Sanchez believes that this meet and greet is the first time in his almost 20 years at Penn State that one has been scheduled. Light refreshments will be served and the meeting will end at 8pm. John Sanchez can be reached at apache@psu.edu.
