Meet Our Newest Faculty Member: Joel Muraco

You may have noticed a new name on the Fall 2014 Schedule of Classes. Teaching Middle Childhood and Adolescence and Family Development is our newest faculty member, Joel Muraco (pictured below). Human Development is thrilled to announce we will be welcoming him in August. He is currently completing his Ph.D. in Family Studies and Human Development at the University of Arizona, and he will bring with him great teaching, research, and community outreach/service experience – and with any luck even some warmer temperatures! We’ll have a formal introduction with many more details in the fall, but for now, thank you to all of the students who were involved in the interview process, and know you will have another great resource in Professor Muraco in a few short months. You can learn more about him now by linking to his current profile at the University of Arizona: http://cals.arizona.edu/fcs/grad/joel_muraco
