UArizona Communication's launch of the Public Relations minor has been long awaited by students of all areas who wish to bridge communication and the business world. To support that minor a number of new Public Relations courses had to be developed. With a new curriculum comes the need for new faculty members with a high level of experience and expertise in the area of Public Relations. In August of 2019, we welcomed four such faculty into our growing Communication Department here at UArizona. We are very pleased and lucky to have these talented teacher-scholars join our ranks.
University of Arizona alumna Jeannette Maré founded Ben's Bells in 2003. This fall, she returned to school to study kindness in the Department of Communication with Professor Kory Floyd.
