Professor Corrigan

David Corrigan

David Corrigan is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science. Along with a variety of programming and application courses he has taught over the years, he also teaches several different math courses, focusing now on developmental / pre-college level math. His seven years in retail combined with database projects and web sites developed for area businesses and organizations, not to mention self-publishing a novel (The Last Time I Saw Julie Hopkins) and creating a new genre of verse introduced in the as yet unpublished The Book of Limerku, contribute to Mr. Corrigan's ability to relate topics in information technology with real-world applications. Moreover, the former assistant international linguistics coordinator for special projects and associate editor of Notes on Linguistics (both while a member of SIL International) gained experience in analyzing binary features of phonological phenomena which he has used to inform his creation of justifiable scoring blueprints that he applies to various assessments of student learning. Early in his relationship with SCC, Mr. Corrigan served as the original coordinator of academic support of the Salem Community College Salem City Education Center, a satellite campus created to address the educational needs of underserved populations in the county seat. He has also served as past president of SCC's faculty senate, co-advisor to the SCC chapter of Phi Theta Kappa--an honor society for two-year colleges--and second tenor with the Salem Oak Singers.
