Robert (Rob) LeBlanc, a Havertown native, recently joined Falvey in the newly created position of First-Year Experience Librarian. In this position he will work with the Augustine and Culture Seminar department and Villanova Learning Communities, providing outreach, instruction and research support while “creating new ways to deliver instruction” to first-year students.
Rob will also serve on two humanities liaison teams: philosophy/theology/humanities with Bente Polites as team coordinator and English/romance languages and literature/theatre with Judith Olsen as team coordinator.
Rob has a bachelor’s degree in English and philosophy from Rutgers University, a master’s degree in English literature from Duquesne University and a master’s degree in library and information science from Drexel University. Before coming to the University he was an instruction and outreach services librarian at Albright College in Reading (Pa.).
“I am looking forward to working with staff both in and outside the Library to embed library services into the freshman curriculum,” Rob says.
His hobbies are varied: photography, reading, music (he plays the harmonica, hammered dulcimer and “a bit of slide guitar”), video gaming and Wing Chun kung fu (Stop by to ask Rob what that is!).
