We are thrilled to be profiling emeritus Communication Sciences and Disorders faculty members in October and November!

First up: Professor Emerita Robin Chapman. Her advice for current clinical students? “Your skills in therapy will be life-giving and life-changing for our young and our old!”

Professor Emerita Chapman also shares, “I’ve gone on to a post-retirement life of poetry writing (a tenth book published in 2019, The Only Home We Know, available from Small Press Distribution); and painting, in watercolor and acrylics (Madison College classes with Jane Fasse, and a solo show at the Pyle Center in early February, 2020; and some pieces in a group show of Thursday’s Artists in Sequoya Library for the spring and summer of 2020); and raising vegetables with my husband in our plot in the Eagle Heights Community Gardens–a wonderful bounty of tomatoes this summer!

“I remember well the chair of honor that the clinical staff, led by Joan Kwiatkowski, presented to various people; and the wonderful research projects of our students who have gone on to lead the field and retire!

“Wishing you the best on new learning for Covid times: good lighting for virtual conferences and classes, on-line instruction, and video support!”
