Alumni Newsletter

Much Ado

 The department is proud to announce the publication of our Alumni newsletter, "Much Ado". First published in Spring 2008, the newsletter was developed as a way for our graduates to stay up-to-date with what is happening in the department, as well as with each other. The department hopes to publish a new issue each semester.

We want to hear from you! If you have had any works published, presented papers, received an award or new position, or participated in anything else that you think may be of interest to our Alumni, please let us know.

Also, let us know if you would like to be included on the newsletter email and/or mailing list.
Contact: Shawntaye Sledge, at (412)396-6420 or sledges@duq.edu
