We are very, very pleased to announce that Marshall Scott Poole has been named David L. Swanson Professor of Communication. As noted in the Provost's guidelines on such named Professorships, this designation is "reserved for appointees who are among the most talented and accomplished" members of the faculty.

This Professorship was named after David Swanson, who was the head of the Department of Speech Communication from 1994 to 2001 before becoming associate provost. The Swanson Professorship is a reminder of the excellence that he brought to the department and the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  
Congratulations Scott! A major accomplishment!
