Featured Multimedia Journalism Faculty

Dr. Mike Trice
- Communication Department Chair

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 am working just as hard to be there for you. We build these ideas together. You will be great.' Students leave my class with a better understanding of themselves and with confidence to succeed in various forms of interpersonal relationships.
