MACOMB/MOLINE, IL - - Western Illinois University's annual Distinguished Faculty Lecture has been moved to the Fall 2010 semester due to extenuating circumstances for 2010 Distinguished Faculty Lecturer Don T. Johnson, professor of finance, according to Provost Jack Thomas.

Johnson's teaching and research interests are in real estate investment and brokerage, distressed property and appraisal.

The Distinguished Faculty Lecturer (DFL) delivers the yearly speech on the WIU-Macomb and WIU-Quad Cities campuses. The DFL is also recognized as part of the stage party at Spring and Fall Commencement ceremonies and the New Student Convocation.

Western Illinois first presented an annual lecturer award in 1969 to honor an outstanding faculty member whose professional development in research or creative activity, teaching and service to the University represent the highest standards of the academic community. In 1998 the award was renamed the Distinguished Faculty Lecturer.
