When Clark Cory, an associate professor of computer graphics technology, fell 16 feet on a job site, landed on his head and broke his back, he realized leaving construction and teaching full-time might be his best bet.
Cory has an associate degree in building construction management and a bachelor's degree in technical graphics. After receiving his master's degree in education computing from Purdue, Cory joined the Department of Computer Graphics Technology in 1999. He is now working on getting his PhD in learning design and technology. Obviously, juggling a tenure track position with earning a doctorate isn’t easy. As one might imagine, time management is key.
But despite his busy schedule, there’s no denying that Cory is passionate about his job.
