Dr. Sarah Nytroe appointed director of DSU Rome 2014

I am pleased to announce that I have accepted the recommendation of the Rome Program Faculty Committee comprised of Dr. Brian Kane, Ms. Elizabeth Rosa, Dr. Jerry Joyce, and Mr. Brian MacDonald that Dr. Sarah Nytroe, Assistant Professor of History, be appointed the Director of the DeSales University Rome Program for the fall 2014 semester.  As previously announced, Ms. Juilene Osborne-McKnight will direct the program during the fall 2013 semester.

Due to the good work of Professors Kane and Rosa, DeSales University has its own free-standing Rome program, based at the Dante Alighieri Italian Language Center.  We send 15 students from various majors to Rome for each fall semester.  Our faculty director is provided with housing and travel expenses and teaches three courses while in Rome.

To date, the faculty members who have served as Directors of the DeSales University Rome Program are Drs. Chapp, Howsare, Kerr, Myers, Loughlin, and Yermolenko, each of whom have had very successful experiences while in Rome and who have served as “ambassadors” for the program since their return.  I encourage you to consider applying for the position of Director for the fall 2015 semester by the deadline of November 15, 2013.  Details of the application process will be sent to you in the fall.

My thanks to all these faculty members for making the DeSales University Rome Program a worthwhile academic experience and life experience for our students.
