David E. Magill, assistant professor of English, earned a Ph.D. from the University of Kentucky.
“Dr. Magill comes to UPJ from a visiting professorship at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville,” Etheridge said. “Dr. Magill’s strength in English literature, with a focus on Modern Masculinities: Race and Manhood in 1920s U.S. Literature and Culture, will add critical dimension to our humanities program.”
New assistant professor of history Veronica A. Wilson completed her Ph.D. in 2002 at Rutgers University and comes to UPJ from the University of Massachusetts, where she was a visiting professor.
“Dr. Wilson is a welcome addition to our history department,” Etheridge noted. “Her strengths in American and women’s history with a focus on gender studies will fill a heretofore noticeable pause in our offerings.”
The engineering technology program added Brian Houston as assistant professor of civil engineering technology. Houston holds two bachelor’s degrees and a master’s degree from Oklahoma State University.
“Mr. Houston was the senior design engineer at Matrix Service, Inc., prior to joining UPJ,” Etheridge said. “We welcome Brian, who will strength our civil engineering offerings.”
