Dr. Marianne Ferguson, professor of religious studies will be phasing her retirement, starting fall 2011 and ending spring 2014. Dr. Ferguson has been serving tirelessly as coordinator for the interdisciplinary religious studies minor for over 30 years.

She has recently developed an online version of REL 321 World Religions, as well as piloting a new procedure for online student evaluations.
