The President’s Colleagues of Dixie State College, founded nearly 20 years ago by former DSC President Dr. Douglas Alder, is a group of retired professors and other professionals who live mostly in the St. George and Washington County area. Dr. Alder, who also started an Honors Program at DSC, organized the Colleagues as a way to increase academic activities on campus.
The Colleagues meet together once a month during the academic year to hear presentations from each other and/or invited guests. The next Colleagues meeting is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 3, 2012, and will feature a discussion on DSC’s DOCUTAH Film Festival with DSC assistant professor of communication Phil Tuckett.
