Message from Joseph M. Rifici, AA-C, M.Ed., Executive Program Director
I am pleased to announce the MSA Program's creation, a new off-site location in Washington, D.C. The launching of a new program in our nation's capital is part of our long-term goal to grow our program while maintaining small class sizes, quality teaching, and high educational standards. MSA D.C. will serve students in the Eastern region of the U.S. and give impetus for the expansion of the AA profession.
We are committed to continuing our legacy of excellence in education, to training highly skilled and compassionate AAs, and now to offering students access to one of the most vibrant cities in the U.S.
Shane Angus: D.C. Program Director
On September 13, 2011, Shane Angus, AA-C, formally became Program Director of MSA D.C. As an alumnus of the MSA program, Shane knows firsthand the quality of the CWRU program.
Shane considers location to be one of the attractions of the D.C. program. The new off-site location is in a cosmopolitan city, the political hub of the country.
Shane was born and raised in Santa Barbara, California. He received his BS in Integrative Biology from the University of California at Berkeley, and his MS in Anesthesiology from CWRU in 1999. Shane brings with him to this position a breadth of experience in AA education and expertise in training students to be spokespersons for the profession. Faculty development has been a strong and ongoing interest of Shane's. He is dedicated to supporting the professional growth of AA faculty and improving the quality of instruction by providing training and clinical instructor workshops.
Shane's interests include international travel and food. Before attending Berkeley, Shane went to culinary school and considered becoming a chef. We are proud to welcome Shane back to CWRU.
