The late Clay Schoenfeld had a long and distinguished career in academia becoming both emeritus dean and emeritus professor of the University of Wisconsin at Madison. His journalism background provided a foundation for teaching and writing. He wrote extensively about higher education leadership and mass communication and was an advocate for young professionals as they entered teaching and administration.
