Klumpp Receives National Career Awards
Professor James F. Klumpp is the 2013 recipient of two national awards recognizing a career of distinguished scholarship and achievement.
In July, at the NCA/AFA Biennial Conference on Argumentation in Alta, Utah, Klumpp received the 2013 Senior Scholar Award.
