Patrick Dodge is Associate Professor CT in the Department of Communication at the University of Colorado Denver | International College Beijing. He teaches courses in culture and communication, US-China communication, and communication theory. His areas of expertise are culture & communication, intercultural & cross-cultural communication, and US-China communication. Patrick  has published in journals such as the Journal of Communication, Intercultural Communication Studies, Communication & Critical Cultural Studies, Chinese Journal of Communication, Women & Language, and International Journal of Intercultural Relations. He is a co-leader in the National Communication Association's (NCA) Task Force to Foster International Collaborations. In 2013 he was ICB's "Excellence in Teaching Award" winner and is the 2018 inaugural fellow for the NCA-CUC Visiting Fellows Program for Communication and Media Research. His teaching philosophy is rooted in the combination of theory and practice, concepts and application, which he believes can lead to exciting insights and understanding not only within but also outside the classroom in everyday practice. When he is not teaching for ICB he is out and about exploring Beijing's hutongs.
