Dr. Tery Griffin
Associate Professor of Multimedia Communication and Chair of Multimedia Communication Department

Why I Teach:

"After my own experiences at both large and small institutions, I decided I would be happier teaching at a small college, where I would have the opportunity to really get to know and work with my students. Wesley fit that description."
