Wayland Phoenix students always come away from Dr. Traugott's class's with a keener sense of that classes subject matter...whether it be Contemporary Usage, Research Writing or Studies in Fiction. The diverse academic background Dr. Traugott brings helps our students grasp their subject better with more depth. A former full-time faculty member at both Concordia University in River Forest, IL and at Ottawa University here in Phoenix, Dr. Traugott is a published author with articles appearing in several different profesisonal journals. He is also a researcher in a number of disciplines. He is also a member of the National Association of Gender Diversity. After Dr. Traugott retired from Ottawa, he joined Wayland Phoenix as an adjunct professor.
