Credentials:

B.A., Iowa State University, 1981.

M.S., Iowa State University, 1987.

Ph.D., University of Iowa, 1995.

I’m the chair of Communication & Media Studies at Simpson College, and I’ve been a member of the faculty  since 1989. I’m a teacher first and foremost and have won several campus, regional and national teaching awards. Before coming to Simpson, I was a government and politics reporter with the Ames Daily Tribune and the Associated Press. I’m a passionate believer in the values of the First Amendment and the potential for journalism to nourish a democratic culture. When I’m not working with students at Simpson, you’ll usually find me on my bicycle, on the golf course or traveling around the world. During Fall 2013, I led Simpson’s Semester in London program at Roehampton University. Starting in January 2014, I’ll serve as editor of the national research journal Teaching Journalism & Mass Communication.

 

 

Get Involved with IABC/Iowa

Make the Most of Your IABC Experience – Volunteer!

Let’s face it. There’s no shortage of worthy volunteer causes out there. And there are only so many hours in the day. So how can you possibly find time to volunteer for IABC, right? 

Good News – The answer is easier than you think.

First, your career is obviously important to you! Why not make the most of the IABC experience? Simply plan on attending one of our IABC/Iowa professional development events or social and, while you’re at it, volunteer to help with some basic meeting duties – greeting and escorting attendees, for example. Call it professional development with a dash of networking. 

Second, volunteering with IABC is so easy! Not only can you volunteer to assist at a professional development event, but you can also get even more involved by becoming involved on our board. We will be looking to fill board positions in the next few months. What a perfect opportunity to showcase your talent and skills!
