John D. Cormican, Ph.D.
Professor of English
Office: 174 Gordon Science Center
John Cormican has his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in English language and teaches composition and linguistics or language classes. He also has an M.S.W. from Syracuse University. His areas of publication have included Old English, medieval language and literature, child language acquisition, and language and social work practice.
A self-described "born-again peasant," he has gained some notoriety locally by growing blue potatoes and raising chickens that lay green eggs. He is sometimes seen on the racquet ball courts taking out his hostility on a ball, which allows him to be kinder to students than he might otherwise be.
