Featured Faculty

Cara T. Mackie

In the classroom, I not only teach theories of human communication, but also help students become better communicators. I start my courses by stating, 'It will take hard work to succeed, but I will work just as hard to be there for you. We are in this together. I believe in you.' Students leave my class with a better understanding of themselves and with confidence to succeed in various forms of interpersonal relationships.
