Our faculty strive to produce works of the highest scholarly merit that illuminate the role of communication in contemporary social issues. We routinely publish books with top university and commercial presses, place articles in leading national and international journals, earn grants from federal and state funders, and win awards for our scholarship and creative works. Between 2008 and the present, our nine tenure stream faculty published more than seven books and a dozen journal articles, presented dozens of papers at academic conferences, and served as editors, associate editors, and editorial board members in the discipline's top journals. As markers of our excellence in these areas, four of our faculty members recently received prestigious awards, including:

  • the Feminist Scholar Award from the Organization for Research on Women and Communication
  • the Wallace Award from the National Communication Association
  • the University of Colorado Denver College of Liberal Arts and Sciences's Award for Research Excellence
  • the University of Colorado's Thomas Jefferson Award
