  1. Sander de Haan: Multi-Lingual, Multi-Talented

    Dr. Sander de Haan is not a man who can be easily pinned down, even though he’s remained in one spot for 39 years. His willingness and ability to serve, to fill a need, to lead a cause, to be a steadfast hand on whatever wheel — these talents have actually made him elusive of a singular descriptor or solitary title for almost four decades at Hope and, actually, for his entire life.

  2. Steven Iannacone: Master of Dance, Maker of Flight

    From Brooklyn, New York, by way of Belgium and other conservatories and performance halls throughout Europe, Steven Iannacone came to Hope College in the fall of 1990 as a visiting dance professor. It was to be a one-semester-per-year arrangement, so his plan was to work at the college for three autumns and then move on to another dancing-and-teaching gig.
