Communication Earns National Recognition
The Undergraduate College and University Section of the National Communication Association (NCA) has announced that Wittenberg’s Department of Communication not only will receive the organization’s top honor, the Rex Mix Program of Excellence Award, but it will also be the sole department recognized at the NCA Convention in San Francisco, Nov. 14-17.
“This is an auspicious distinction, one that comes from our peers across the country recognizing the quality program we have built on this campus,” said Matthew J. Smith, associate professor of communication and department chair. “What’s even more meaningful is that the process of applying for this recognition was undertaken as a collaboration between faculty and students in the Communications Leaders Program.”
The NCA annually recognizes communication departments and disciplines in the United States that are providing quality, innovative, theoretical and practical programs using superior instruction, pioneering research and practical applications.
