Warner Welcomes New Faculty and Staff

Several new faculty have joined the Warner School in recent months.

Logan Hazen, visiting assistant professor, is no stranger to the University of Rochester or the Warner School. He served as the director of residential life at the College for 17 years before retiring in 2005. In addition, he taught as an adjunct professor in Warner’s higher education program and held adjunct academic positions at Canisius College, University of Southern California, and Western Washington University.

Hazen earned an Ed.D. from Oregon State University. His research interests focus on the impact of residential living on student development, integration of student affairs into academic administration, influences of technology on student development, administrative functions in student affairs, and college women’s alcohol use and abuse.
Hazen starts in January and will be a visiting assistant professor for 18 months. His responsibilities will include teaching courses in higher education, establishing and supervising higher education internships, advising most of the master’s higher education students, recruiting, and supporting the higher education program in a variety of other ways.

Several new staff members have also joined the Warner School in recent months.

Edward Morgan joins Warner as an accountant. Morgan previously worked at Warner as a bookkeeper in 2004. He brings several years of accounting experience in both non-profit and for-profit organizations.

Bethany Comegys joins the Dean’s Office, from Geva Theatre Center, as a secretary supporting the Dean in a variety of ways.

Theresa Danylak joins Warner as a communications manager. In this role, Danylak oversees the management of all publications and written communications for the school. Danylak was previously employed as a senior account executive in the public relations and public affairs group at Eric Mower and Associates.

Diane Ellis is the new associate director of grants. Her primary responsibilities include grant writing, researching funding opportunities for faculty and school research and initiatives, and providing grant-writing coaching and support for staff, faculty, and students on occasion. Ellis joins Warner from Seattle, Wash. where she worked as a grants program manager for Hopelink, an agency serving homeless and low income families, children, seniors, and people with disabilities, with the goals of self sufficiency.
