Columbia residents have publicly voiced their opposition to the measure that is designed to bring jobs to Columbia through a series of tax credits for businesses that set up within the zone’s boundaries.
Westminster College has announced that classics professor Bob Seelinger will serve as dean for the college's second campus in Mesa, Arizona.
Seelinger says he has been involved with the new-campus project since it began a little over a year ago: “I find it very attractive from the beginning, and indicated from the very start that I’d love to be involved in whatever capacity.”
Seelinger began teaching at Westminster in 1979. He’s also been the Chief Academic Officer, and served as the dean of the faculty for seven years.
