Empowering students with language-based learning differences
Joe Fruscione, communications and advancement associate, comes to Siena after working as an editor, social media consultant, and professor of English and Writing in the Washington, DC, area since 1999. He has a B.A. in English from the University of Delaware and a Ph.D. in English from George Washington University. He recently presented at a workshop with Humanities without Walls for doctoral students interested in pursuing careers outside academia. And, in 2019, he was a consultant and social media lead for Georgetown University’s ReinventPhD initiative. He’s published a book (Faulkner and Hemingway: Biography of a Literary Rivalry, 2012) and essay collection (Teaching Hemingway and Modernism, 2015), as well as coedited an essay collection (Succeeding Outside the Academy, 2018). In his free time, he enjoys reading, cooking, walking his dog, and playing ball hockey.
Why I Work At Siena: the community. Students, teachers, administrators, families, alumni—both individually and collectively—are incredibly supportive and encouraging.
