Each year the campus community is ever renewed with new members, about whom established faculty and staff forever sigh: so young. Even the senior class envies the fresh-faces of the freshmen class.
But everyone was new once: Our 25 year class of new faculty and staff from 1991 includes — Brian Doyle, editor of Portland Magazine; Howard Feldman, Business; Patrick Berg, Political Science. Each continuing to enrich our common enterprise. Beginners from 20 years ago include — Mark Kennedy, Engineering; Regina Largent, Army ROTC, then, first director of the Shepard Freshman Resource Center; Peter Osterberg, Engineering; Patricia (Tisha) Morrell, Education; Stephen Vedgahl, Computer Science/Engineering; and Zia Yamayee, Dean of Engineering from 1996. People whose continuing influence benefits UP student life and learning today. But the maximum impact member of the 20 year club is surely *** Kirk Mustain *** Chef, Supervisor, Manager in the Kingdom of Bon Appetit at the Commons, Pilot House, and new to Lund Family Hall. We all rely on him and his ever-young reading of the need, care, maintenance of a quirky community.
Also, on March 3, 1991, Rev. David T. Tyson, C.S.C. was inaugurated as the 18th President of the University of Portland.
