Welcome to our new adjunct faculty members!

Stevenson's University Advancement team focused on communication issues at their 2105 retreat, under the guidance of Business Communication department chair Chip Rouse. The University Advancement team looked at issues of verbal and non-verbal communication, honed their listening skills, and collaborated to examine their communication strengths and weaknesses during the retreat on July 2, 2015. The group finished the day with celebration, lunch and recreational activities.

The Business Communication faculty and several "OWLs" (Orientation and Welcome Leaders) from the department welcomed the new first-year students of the class of 2019 on Tuesday, June 30. The students received an orientation to university life, met friends in the department, and built their fall schedules.

Their Facebook page is already busy with questions to Admissions and lots of helpful information from the student workers. Thanks to all those who helped make the day a success, especially Dr. Heather Harris, Dr. Deric Greene, Ms. Christine Noya, and student OWLS Will Comotto, Annie McCoach, Shane Messick and Kaitlin Kirkwood. It was a thrilling morning!
