Business Communication News

Business Communication faculty members Leeanne Bell McManus and Chip Rouse are starting their fifth year as members of Stevenson's "Faculty in the Halls" program. The program aims to help first-year students (as well as students in other residence halls) recognize that learning can occur anywhere on campus -- not just in the classroom. The five faculty members hold office hours in the residence halls  -- Western Run, Susquehanna, and Patapsco -- and plan monthly activities for their residents. In the photo (l-r) are Art Fifer, Laurel Moody, Leeanne Bell McManus, Romas Laskauskas and Chip Rouse.

Business Communication professor Stephanie Verni spoke to the faculty and staff at the opening Stevenson meeting about how to begin to give voice and reality to the story inside each of us waiting to be told. This is a transcript of her speech....

Congratulations to SU Business Communication grad (class of 2017) Kait Kirkwood, who has snagged a terrific job as the new Discovery Communications Intern Program Coordinator....

The Business Communication department was well represented at Stevenson's opening faculty/staff meeting as professor Stephanie Verni enjoyed the opportunity to talk about writing and publishing a novel, based on her own experiences. Chip Rouse (inset) served as one of two MCs for the meeting, which included presentations by several staffers who spoke about their participation in rewarding activities and hobbies. The meeting was the first for new president Elliot Hirshman.

Two business communication faculty will once again serve as mentors in the "Faculty in the Halls" program at Stevenson University. Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus and professor Chip Rouse will be liaisons to the first-year residents in Western Run Hall, and they are joined by professors Romas Laskauskas (business administration) and Art Fifer (information systems), who serve Susquehanna Hall, and nursing professor Laurel Moody, who's in Patapsco Hall. Her colleague, business communication professor Christine Noya, will be taking the semester off.

The program provides a bridge between academic and residential life, helping students to understand that learning can occur anywhere.The faculty members hold weekly office hours in the residence halls and plan activities for the students to engage them in SU life. The five-year-old program has seen great success and popularity since its inception and continues to grow.
