|CETL is proud to announce that Rachel Bennett (Paralegal Studies) has accepted
the position as our incoming CETL Director. Rachel has joined the CETL BOD for
our spring semester and will be planning and collaborating with the current CETL
director, Heather Roberson, before assuming the position at the start of the summer
Rachel received her B.A. in English and American Literature in 2005 from the University of South Florida and her J.D. from Stetson University College of Law in 2009. She has been with SPC for nine years and regularly teaches Legal Research & Writing, Comparative Legal Systems, Business Law I & II, Business Organizations, Civil Litigation, and Animal Law. Rachel’s passion is in the classroom and the opportunity to serve as CETL director will allow her “to create ways that the amazing faculty at this institution can share their best practices and innovative ideas.”
As you may recall, the CETL Direction position is a 2-year term that is renewable with approval based on one’s annual review and with no term limits. Faculty with continuing contract are eligible to serve in this administrative role while maintaining their full-time faculty status and seniority. The outgoing director will serve on the CETL Board of Directors for one year following the transition to the new director to maintain continuity of service to our faculty.
We would like to thank Heather for her role as CETL Director since May of 2015 and wish her continued success as she returns to her full faculty load in the Social, Behavioral, and Human Services department at the Tarpon Springs campus.
Please welcome Rachel to this position when you see her!
