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!

Faculty in the Halls serving Thanksgiving dinnerThanksgiving dinner came early for the first-year residents on Monday, Nov. 18, as their Faculty in the Halls served up a delicious meal with all the trimmings. Communication professors Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse joined their Faculty in the Hall comrade and nursing professor Laurel Moody to dish up a great homestyle meal to a horde of hungry freshmen. The traditional meal is an annual event that couldn't happen without the help of the Residence Life staff. (Photo by Tiffany Sanchez)
