Congratulations to Business Communication professor Stephanie Verni, who has launched her fourth book as of July 16, 2018. The Postcard and Other Short Stories & Poems is a collection of the professor's stories, with original poetry samplings as well. Verni has previously self-published three novels,  Beneath the Mimosa Tree, Baseball Girl, and Inn Significant. The department is proud to offer congratulations!

The department of Business Communication is on top of its game when it comes to classes being offered in fall, 2018. In addition to the ever-popular Interpersonal and Intercultural Communication classes, the department will offer several sections of Communication Ethics, Conflict and Negotiation, and even a fall section of Organizational Communication, typically offered only in the spring. An Event Planning and Publicity class filled up fast, but there's still room in Principles and Practices of Public Relations. The ever-popular Advertising Campaign class is still open, and a section of Travel Writing is sure to appeal to anyone who's been bitten by the travel bug and wants to share a story. Students can try their hand at Feature Writing or Advanced Public Speaking, or join The Villager staff for credit. It's sure to be an exciting semester!

Maybe it's time to check out Stevenson University Online’s Master of Science in Communication Studies!

According to the degree's website, the program is "developed for professionals who want to build a foundation of effective communication competencies for personal and professional advancement. This master’s program helps graduates translate fundamental ideas of communication into real-world applications. Graduates will develop their skills in evaluating and creating solutions to conflicts that occur within organizations."

According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers 2015 Job Outlook survey, more than 73 percent of employers reported communication skills as a top qualification they seek in potential job candidates. This degree can sharpen your skills and prepare you for any communication setting you encounter.

Eight Stevenson students attended the Eastern Communication Association conference in March, 2018, both as research participants and as student workers, along with four faculty members. They had taken on the ECA as a client in the fall term of 2017, working with Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus helping to plan the five-day conference in Pittsburgh. Most of the students were Business Communication majors, and two studied film and video. Watch the video here that chronicles their "exceptional experiences."
Two Business Communication professors were awarded grants at the Faculty Recognition and Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, May 22, 2018. Congratulations to Professors Leeanne Bell McManus and Stephanie Verni!
 
Professor Verni (left in the photo) who (along with colleague Inna Alesina) was awarded an "Arts Alive" grant that will enable the two professors to examine the interactive connection between advertising and art as they teach during the fall semester. The two teachers collaborated earlier this year as they split teaching duties in a new client-centered course called "The Mill."
 
Dr. Bell McManus was one of only a handful of faculty members who received a Faculty Research Grant for the upcoming year. Her work will focus on "Communication Ethics and the Social World." Dr. Bell McManus' research into the area of Communication Ethics has produced "Communication Ethics Literacy: Dialogue and Difference," which she co-authored with Ronald C. Arnett (2017, Kendall Hunt Publishing).
