Keyword: in the classroom

StephanieVerni 2021Are you interested in taking a communication course that will stimulate your imagination and teach you some valuable new information? Look no further than CM 270, New Media Communication, taught by Professor Stephanie Verni (pictured at left). This class looks at the ways new technologies are integrated into society, and how they are used for communication.

Or perhaps you're more interested in CM 445, Communication and Leadership, taught by Dr. Deric Greene, which "explores the exercise of leadership within multiple contexts and with multiple audiences from a communication perspective."

There are lots of other interesting and exciting courses in the spring communication offerings. Check them out today!

Jack GildenThe Communication department at Stevenson University welcomes local author Jack Gilden to the faculty. His first book was Collision of Wills: Johnny Unitas, Don Shula, and the Rise of the Modern NFL (2018).  He has also recently signed a contract with the University of Nebraska Press to publish a new book about the racehorse, Spectacular Bid.

According to his publisher, "Gilden's editorials, columns, and articles have appeared in Orioles Magazine, the Baltimore Sun, the Evening Sun, Chesapeake Life, Style magazine and the Baltimore Jewish Times. He has written about the anti-Semitism of H.L. Mencken, the literary life of Bernard Malamud, the lost legend of "Swish" Nicholson, Joe Louis as civil rights hero, and the profane genius of Earl Weaver. He wrote the Orioles 40th Anniversary Video, narrated by the legendary Jim McKay."

Top skills employers want

A 2016 LinkedIn survey of employers again ranked communication skills as the most sought-after strength in employees. Both the Communication Studies major and the Business Communication major at Stevenson University develop many of these other skills in their students, especially organization, teamwork and creativity.

Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus receives an awardCongratulations to Communication professor Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus, who received an award for Fostering Learning in the classroom at the faculty/staff meeting that opened the fall semester 2021. The award read: "Leeanne's online and in-person classes are organized, complete and academically engaging -- and she is willing to share all she knows with anyone. Students consistently remark on how much they learn from her, and she is always looking for more ways to keep her classes engaged, both through research and in practice."  Congratulations, Dr. Bell!
