Dear GMU Community,
I’m writing to introduce myself; as of last month, I’m GMU’s provost. I tell you this with some wonder and trepidation, as I acknowledge with both appreciation and admiration the long, dedicated, and accomplished service of Michael Conley, who previously held this position, and of Jean Conley, whose work also helped to define it. I come to GMU with a background in ministry, psychology, peace studies (which I’ve taught atGMU for several years), education, activism, and nonprofit administration. I also write – mostly articles on cultural and social justice issues – and am a student and practitioner of haiku…. Read more of Dr. Cejka’s letter here.
