The School of Communications Advisory Board unites highly respected leaders from the communications field to share crucial industry insights, ensure that our curriculums remain relevant and provide bridges for students to some of the most well-known media companies.
Advisory Board Overview
Our window to the world of modern media
Preparing communications students to meet the current demands of the media fields means keeping our finger on the pulse of an ever-changing landscape. To that end, the School of Communications has established an advisory board to provide vital guidance to faculty, staff and administration. Board members bring decades of experience, and serve as chief executives and other high-powered leaders in the fields of national broadcasting, digital and print media, film, design, advertising and public relations.
The board members will act as liaisons to the companies they represent, which include Conde Nast, ESPN, Ad Age, Nielsen, Forbes, Univision, Dow Jones, NBCUniversal and many other leading nationally-known media companies. While the board members officially meet twice a year to share how they've handled their company’s various challenges, they will remain an accessible resource throughout the year to both faculty and our student population.
Students from a range of disciplines may have the chance to display their work for board members. They also may participate in projects with board member companies with the permission of their department chair and school dean. These exchanges allow world-class leaders in the media field to closely gauge the skill sets, talents and interests of current Quinnipiac students.
The Advisory Board secures bridges to leading companies in the communication field, allowing us to keep pace with new trends and provide real-world exposure for students.
