Faculty & Staff

The School of Communication is comprised of 18 full-time faculty, two staff assistants, and two or more student workers.  We are a tight-knit, collegial academic unit with a proud history of innovative program development, award-winning teaching and scholarship, and student engagement in research and campus activities.  The single best adjective to describe all members of the School of Communication, students included, is “ambitious.”

The School's faculty are dedicated teachers and student advisors, in addition to being active scholars who publish in their areas of expertise.  As a Communication student, you will work closely with your professors in small classes and come to know them well, as they will come to know you.
