LINC College-Community Luncheon Featuring Dr. William Coleman to be Held November 20

May 25, 2010

Mount Union College faculty member Dr. William Coleman will headline the third session of LINC, the college-community luncheon series featuring Mount Union College professors and community members discussing current topics, on Tuesday, November 20 at 11:45 a.m. in the East Room of the Hoover-Price Campus Center.

Coleman, assistant to the president for diversity affairs and professor of communication, will discuss 'Why Asia Matters.' A member of the Mount Union College faculty since 1979, Coleman has been a stalwart of diversity at the College and is currently leading the effort to expand cultural diversity throughout the campus.

Coleman, a native of Hubbard, earned bachelors and masters degrees in communication and a doctoral degree in rhetorical theology and criticism, all at The Ohio State University. He attended Crozer Theological Seminary in Philadelphia before earning his master of divinity degree in religion and theology in 1971 from Capital University.

LINC (lunch, information, networking and conversation) was established this year to take advantage of the local expertise that exists in Alliance, especially given the College's outstanding academic reputation.

The series is open to the public. Additional sessions will run from on the third Tuesday of February, March and April. The cost for the lunch is $9. The sessions are chaired by Scott Ingledue, chairman of the Board of Directors of Alliance Community Hospital, with comments and updates from President Richard Giese and Harry Paidas, vice president for public affairs and marketing of the College.

'We have received positive feedback from the first two LINC sessions and have high interest in Dr. Coleman's session this Tuesday,' Paidas said. 'Our goal is to showcase our talented faculty members for the benefit of our community. We invite more community members to join us.'
