    Kudos to Marilyn Annucci, associate professor of languages and literatures, who was selected as a featured poet for Bus Lines. A signature project of the Madison Poet Laureate program, Bus Lines brings poetry before city residents in a creative way. It creates an opportunity for Madison residents to display their poems inside Metro Transit buses.

    Kudos to Jo Ann Oravec, associate professor information technology and supply chain management, who presented the following paper at the Society for Disability Studies Conference in Minneapolis, June 11-15: "Social Media in Academic and Professional Interaction: Addressing Obstacles to Accessibility as Designers and Social Advocates in Time-Sensitive Contexts."
