08/14/06In the recent memory of nearly everyone on campus, Xavier University students and staff members have become accustomed to consulting with Dr. Jo Ann Recker, SND de N for all matters related to the Department of Modern Languages. Dr. Recker stepped down from the position of Department Chair over the summer, having overseen a long period of growth in numbers of students and faculty members.
Dr. David Knutson assumed the Chair's duties in mid-July. A Xavier faculty member since 1994, Dr. Knutson has experience on a variety of university committees, including a term as Chair of the Faculty Committee during the 2000-01 academic year.
