Don Dillman has been a sociology faculty member at WSU since 1969. He describes his WSU journey as being just long enough to track many sociology graduates throughout their careers from graduation to retirement. As co-editor he hopes to find ways to link alums now scattered throughout the world with the excitement of current happenings in the Sociology Department.
