The Heart of a Great School

School of Communications faculty and staff, August 2008

School of Communications faculty and staff, ready for the Fall 2008 term

The heart of a great school is the faculty. Not the curriculum. Not the facilities. Not the technology. The faculty.

For the second year in a row, an Elon School of Communications professor will receive one of the top awards at our national convention. In Chicago next month, Professor Janna Anderson will receive the Outstanding Educator Award from the Newspaper Division as an outstanding teacher and director of the Imagining the Internet Center. Professor George Padgett received the division’s other national distinction last year — the Professional Freedom & Responsibility Award — for his ground-breaking work in diversity education and First Amendment awareness.

Facilities, technology and curriculum all are important, of course. But the heart of higher education is the quality and dedication of faculty members. We’re blessed to have the nation’s best in Elon’s School of Communications, and they pour themselves into the lives and professional aspirations of our students.
