            A part of the Central faculty for 30 years, Robert E. Lovell has retired as professor emeritus of English.

            Lovell joined the faculty in 1974 as associate professor of English, and prior to that had taught high school for 10 years. He also taught at the University of Texas as a graduate assistant while completing his doctoral program.

             Throughout his tenure he has attended numerous professional conferences and authored a number of scholarly publications including articles addressing methods and resources for Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) and medieval literature.

            Lovell participated in many university committees and acted as one of several chairpersons of scholarly selections from the department of English during the sixth annual meeting of the Missouri Philological Association. He held membership in many professional organizations to include the Modern Language Association and Medieval Academy of America.

            In his retirement Lovell plans to continue to travel and will consider a number of volunteer opportunities to remain in academia. He is interested particularly in volunteer positions in the Kansas City area with the Don Bosco Center and Guadalupe Center in TESL. He is also interested in pursuing opportunities with a Kansas City adult literacy program and with the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art.
