James P. McGlone, Ph.D.

Professor - Emeritus

Department of Communication and the Arts


Dr. McGlone is professor emeritus in the Department of Communication and The Arts.

Education, in my opinion, is a conversation that involves talking about things that matter; it implies a love of people, generally referred to as friendship, and a love of words, the only, if imperfect, symbols we have with which to enter each other's mind and spirit. I adhere to W. B. Yeats' suggestion that "I must be talking to my friends" and in that category I include my students and colleagues. That is my goal when engaging students in my classes.
