Faculty and Staff

Valpo’s communication faculty offer a broad range of experience in the communication industries and in the classroom.

The breadth of faculty expertise, combined with excellent facilities, enables the department to offer a wide range of courses. Students are assigned a faculty advisor within the department as soon as they enroll, both at the undergraduate and graduate level. The faculty all excel at maintaining close contacts with alumni and other leaders in the communication industries and regularly use both sources of expertise to help shape program offerings.
