Dennis Dong to NCCU
NASP has lost one great asset but found another. The project director, CORD postdoc Dennis Dong, has taken a position as an assistant professor at National Chengchi University (NCCU), Taipei, Taiwan. NCCU is one of the elite universities of Taiwan and is best known for its programs in the social sciences and public administration. Dennis will be missed but congratulations are in order as he has reached early “postdoc escape velocity,” a full-time faculty position in a fine university.
In happier news, Justin Stritch, who is joining ASU and CORD this summer, has agreed to take over as NASP project director. Justin has a great deal of relevant experience, including working with Dennis on a previous University of Georgia incarnation of NASP.
