Communication, Journalism and Media Department
Dr. Tim Thompson
Department graduates are enjoying a wide range of professional success all around the world. To showcase the success of our alumni, the department has created a Friends of Communication Wall of Fame in Compton Hall. Our alumni have enthusiastically responded to this new initiative by contributing $250 each to purchase a personal name plaque that is featured on the wall, with the proceeds going to a new Friends of Communication fund, which directly benefits the department and our students. Purchase a name plaque.
To update the department on your career achievements, please email Dr. Tim Thompson, department chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
