Lauryn Davis in videoCommunication's very own Lauryn Davis is one of the people thanking donors for supporting our students and for their committed philanthropy. Along with Dr. Hirshman and Kathy Kimber, Lauryn plays an important role in the video! 

Our major's coursework integrates presentations into assignments to help polish our students' public speaking skills. Lauryn and other students in our major have learned how to present, whether in person, on camera, or via social media. We are so proud of Lauryn and all she is involved with at Stevenson University!

Ryan Patrick Hockey PlayerCommunication senior Ryan Patrick was named MAC Player of the Week for assisting the Mustangs on a 2-0 week. Additionally, Ryan was named UCHC Player of the Week.

In the matchup and sweep against Tufts, Ryan led the Mustangs with four points on two goals and two assists and was plus-2 this weekend. On Friday, he served up two assists in a 6-2 win. On Saturday, Ryan scored a power-play goal and added a shorthanded marker in a 4-0 victory over the Tufts Jumbos.

Ryan manages to adeptly balance his hockey schedule and his academics, and was one of the students who worked in The Mill last semester with Dr. Bell, using his communication skills to assist their client, BricknFire Pizza, with its marketing and communication campaign.

Congratulations, Ryan!

Research comm profsThe faculty in the Department of Communication have been busy researching, writing and presenting in the field of communication. Here are a few highlights of what the professors have been up to of late:

Department chair Dr. Lee Krähenbühl is coordinating the Maryland Communication Association Conference and serves as MCA’s First Vice President. Dr. Heather Harris will deliver the keynote address on the conference theme, “Diversity in Communication: Communication and Social Justice.” The department will work with students to present at the conference in the spring.

Dr. Deric Greene will host Dr. Felicia Stewart, a dean from Morehouse College, who will talk about her journal article “I am not a thief: Retelling my story to understand a racist encounter” (The Qualitative Report, 25[10]) as a part of his CM 211 Intercultural Communication class’s discussion on “What Causes Us to Hold Biases against Outgroups?”

Dr. Heather Harris participated in the first Critical Media Literacy Conference of the Americas in celebration of the centenary of Paulo Friere, October 15-17, and is also attended the National Communication Association annual meeting in Seattle, WA.

Dr. Krähenbühl presented his research to the annual conference of the John Whitmer Historical Association on October 23. The article synopsized, “Actors Wandering Through the Desert to Brigham: The Strange, True Tale of Carter’s Dramatic Combination and their ‘Spirit Gudies,’ 1871,” and will appear in the Spring/Summer 2022 volume of the John Whitmer Historical Association Journal. Lee also chaired and presented in the panel “Administrating and Teaching Communication Past Three Milestones: Pre-and Post-Internet, Smart Tech, and-COVID-19” for the Association for Communication Administration at the National Communication Association annual meeting in Seattle, WA, on November 19.

Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus co-authored “Instructor Perceptions of Rapport with Students: Impacts on Out of Class Communication, Caring, and Burnout,” which was selected as a “TOP PAPER” presented at the National Communication Association’s Annual Convention.

Prof. Stephanie Verni published two novellas: "From Humbug to Humble: The Transformation of Ebenezer Scrooge," which picks up with Dickens’ Scrooge after he saw the Sprits and imagines what he ACTUALLY did to become a better human being. The other novella, "Anna in Tuscany," is about a writer who lives in Tuscany for a year and has to write a Valentine's Day article. Both are available on Amazon.com. Stephanie will attend “A Dickens of A Christmas” in Chestertown, MD, on December 4 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and “An Evening with Dickens” in Severna Park at Park Books in Severna Park, MD, on December 7 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., where she will sign books and participate in the festivities.

ECA panel 2021Three professors presented last week at the annual Eastern Communication Association Convention. Typically held each year at locations on the East Coast, the convention pivoted to a virtual conference, and panelists presented and attended via Zoom. Professors Leeanne Bell McManus, Chip Rouse, and Stephanie Verni (pictured with other presenters), authors of "Event Planning: Communicating Theory and Practice," presented on two panels; one panel discussed event planning in crisis, and the other panel covered reducing student anxiety in a pandemic. The Eastern Communication Association is the oldest professional communication association in the United States, established in 1910. Members collaborate on research and share best teaching practices in this service-oriented organization.

Ryan Coleman LacrosseCongratulations to junior communication major Ryan Coleman on being named to the USILA Team of the Week earlier this month. After a career-best six-point performance in the season opener, Coleman finished with three goals and three assists in a 13-8 victory over 18th-ranked Stevens on Saturday, March 6, 2021. His stellar performance included 3 points in the second quarter with two goals and one assist. He also added a goal and two assists in the second half of the game. Congratulations, Ryan, on receiving that honor!
