“We are delighted that Stephanie is joining the Denison staff to coordinate this exciting new program in innovation,” said Dr. Keith Boone, Associate Provost and head of the Program Committee. “As a liberal arts graduate with a range of professional experiences, she brings to this job a perfect combination of background and enthusiasm.”
