List of Fall Sportmanship nominees

Congratulations to Business Communication senior Emma Adams, who along with six other Mustangs, was named to the fall Middle Atlantic Conference Sportsmanship Team. Emma is a field hockey student athlete, who, according to the award, exemplifies "great character and demonstrate the act of sportsmanship both and off the field. These student-athletes were selected by the head coaches from their respective teams. They represent their team, institution and the conference with high integrity, and exhibit respect for themselves, teammates, coaches and opponents."

William Betason, Chip Rouse and Hunter McIntyreThe communication department welcomed S.A.F.E. Management's Hunter McIntyre (in the photo, right), the director of operations in Baltimore, as the 12th annual Shapiro/Rouse lecturer at Stevenson University. He was introduced by Business Communication alum Will Beatson (left). Hunter spoke to a crowd in the Claire Moore room on Nov. 19, 2019, about the importance of communication in the business forum, and was helped with examples from Will as well. Both men were welcomed by Chip Rouse (center), associate professor of business communication, and everyone in the crowd was treated to a copy of Perfecting Your Pitch by Ron Shapiro, a book that Hunter worked on and spoke about during his talk, and which he gave away as a gift.

The series was begun 12 years ago through a generous donation by Ron Shapiro -- negotiator, agent, attorney, author. The department of business communication is grateful for Ron's generous spirit.

Dr. Heather Harris presented at two sessions: "Celebrating the Contributions and Impact of African American Health Communication Pioneer Dr. Carolyn A. Stroman" and "Women in the Running: Surviving the Races." She also  chaired a panel called "Communication for Survival in Post Obama Neo-Race Realities."

Dr. D. M. Greene presented in the panel titled "Women in the Running: Surviving the Races," and co-chaired a panel called "African Americans’ Survival of Health Disparities."

Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus presented as part of "Thriving and Surviving in the Social Media Age: Leveraging Technology for Effective Teaching and Research," and in "A Student's Guide to Surviving Communication Ethics." She also served as a respondent in "Contributions from Chinese Communication Studies, Disability Studies, Communication & the Future, Freedom of Expression, Mass Communication, Performance Studies and Philosophy of Communication."

Congratulations to the professors for sharing their research with a national audience!

Panelists of interns

Business Communication interns Yina Dong (left) and Andrew Nagel (right) participated in an internship panel on Friday, Nov. 15, 2019, organized by the School of Design's internship director, Sonya Lawyer. The students on the panel (there were more than the photo shows) spoke about their own internships to an audience of current interns, faculty, employers, and students looking for a position. The two communication interns spoke about how they found their site, and what they learned while they were there. The event was held in the Rockland banquet room and was followed by the traditional poster session.
