MEET YOUR REPRESENTATIVE

The Illinois Kappa Chapter at Dominican University (formerly Rosary College) in River Forest, Ill., has been in existence since 1952. Our Pi Gamma Mu chapter is one of the largest and oldest active honor societies on campus. I have been the faculty moderator since 1983.  The Illinois Kappa Chapter is distinguished by its diversity, initiating students over the years from a variety of majors and personal backgrounds.  Consequently, our chapter engages in a great deal of programming that reflects a multicultural perspective on race, gender, and popular culture, organizing speakers and programs for Hispanic Heritage Month, Women’s History Month, and the annual Martin Luther King Jr. commemoration. Our Pi Gamma Mu initiates have served as conference interns and assistants at the Blues and the Spirit Symposia and the Women and Gender Studies Conference.  (Clearly, my own research and teaching interests have informed these chapter activities. Also, I am particularly enthusiastic about expanding opportunities for experiential learning in the social sciences. I have arranged study tours for university students in collaboration with the University of Havana in Cuba, and I conduct an annual domestic-study course that explores the racial and musical heritage of the Mississippi Delta. In addition, I host a multidisciplinary conference, Blues and the Spirit, on the legacy of African American music.) The strong interdisciplinary, integrative, and global foci of Pi Gamma Mu reflect my personal and professional pedagogical philosophy, and I am excited about working with others, nationally and internationally, who share this broad and vibrant vision for the social sciences.

CHANGE OF ADDRESS

Anytime you move, such as after graduation, please notify the Pi Gamma Mu office immediately.  We use your e-mail address to send out the Pi Gamma Mu Newsletter, so it is important that we have your current e-mail address. If the address we have for you is through your university it may not be available for you after graduation and you will not receive the newsletters.  Your mailing (postal) address is used to mail our journal, the International Social Science Review, so this information is also critical.  We want to remain in contact with you over the years.

We would appreciate it if you would send us your new mailing address and e-mail address.  You can e-mail us at executivedirector@pigammamu.org, or through the Web site at www.pigammamu.org/contact.html.  You can also mail a change-of-address card , post card, or letter with your name and old and new address to: Pi Gamma Mu, 1001 Millington, Suite B, Winfield, KS 67156.
