We are thrilled to announce that Professor Donnie Johnson Sackey will join our faculty in Fall 2018! Donnie is currently an Assistant Professor of English at Wayne State University and an affiliated researcher in the Writing, Information, and Digital Experience (WIDE) Research Center. He’s also a senior researcher with the Detroit Integrated Vision for Environmental Research through Science and Engagement (D*VERSE), which he co-founded. D*VERSE is a transdisciplinary research team that works at the intersection of health, environmental, and communication sciences, and it aims to develop a new approach for evaluating the impact of certain environmental stressors on health in urban settings.


Donnie does community-engaged scholarship and research in environmental rhetoric, and he teaches courses in digital and cultural rhetorics: this year, he won Wayne State University’s President’s Award for Excellence in Teaching. He's currently at work on a book about the Flint water crisis.
