    Dr. Clyde Coreil holds a Ph.D. in lingustics from the City University of New York and an M.F.A. in playwriting and theater from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. His main interests at NJCU include finding ways to combine the teaching of academic writing with the imagination.

    He is co-chair of the annual Conference on the Role of the Imagination in Language Learning, which is now in its fourteenth year, and editor of an annual Journal which treats the same theme. Dr. Coreil is an active playwright, whose most recent work deals with a young American woman teacher and an undercover North Vietnamese officer who fall deeply in love during the Vietnam War. Coreil wrote the book, lyrics and music for this piece. A more recent full-length musical, "Homelands," is about a handicapped sparrow who chooses service to his flock over the new found wonders of flight.

    Dr. Coreil is serving as Coordinator of the ESL Program. He is listed in Who's Who in America.
