Job: I am a Professor of Sociology at Grinnell College, a wonderfully supportive national liberal arts college in the middle of Iowa. I have been at Grinnell for 30 years now and can think of no other teaching environment I would prefer. I have in recent years focused on nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations, combining my teaching interests, some research, and my own volunteer involvement in local nonprofit organizations. Personal news: My wife Judy is the Director of the Writing Lab at Grinnell, one of the only writing labs in the country staffed entirely by adult professionals. My daughter is now a labor lawyer in Washington DC and my son is a high school math teacher in Grinnell. In our spare time, I am the Chair of the Board of Directors of the local community action agency and Judy has founded and now directs a new educational foundation in Grinnell. Grinnell is a good place to live and work. We consider ourselves fortunate to be here. Ph.D. Dissertation: Leadership-Role Differentiation in Small Groups: Some Methodological and Substantive Issues
