for Excellence in Teaching. From 1999 to 2013, he served as chair of the department of Communications and Journalism.

He is the author of a novel, The Might Have Been, which earned praise from The New York Times, Publishers Weekly, Kirkus

the Year, and made the St. Louis Post Dispatch's "50 Favorite Books of 2012.
