Janet Colvin: I have a couple of different research interests. The one I spend most of my time
on right now is looking at what part cultural plays in instructional communication.
Nancy Tobler and I are working on an ongoing project looking at the effects of adding
cultural components to public speaking courses. I am also working on a project assessing
where we are institutionally as far as culture, diversity, and inclusion. I have
also spent a lot of time examining the relationship between peer tutors or mentors,
students, and instructors and how the mentor/tutor role gets talked about and enacted.
I have a variety of other projects I am involved with as well.
Nancy Tobler: My current projects are related to Public Speaking and Culture. Diabetic Patient,
Physician workflow and the Electronic Health Record. Labor and Delivery, Rapid Response
and Team Change. Developing Program Assessment Plan.
Maria Blevins: As the population grows and global climate change ushers in unprecedented changes
to human/environment interactions, I am interested in the ways organizations involved
with disputes concerning natural resource are communicating and how organizational
identities effect that communication. Through research I hope to gain knowledge that
will facilitate changes in organizations and institutions to support a more sustainable
mode of functioning. The study of organizational communication theory offers a lens
to investigate how organizations perform as actors in environmental conflicts. In
addition, I hope to be a skilled facilitator in alternative dispute resolution for
contentious issues regarding the environment. I hope to research and teach skills
in communication and conflict resolution to help individuals who act within organizations
to navigate conflicts in a changing world.

David Morin: My current research focuses on mass media effects from a political communication perspective.
Currently, I am working on several projects examining political credibility, spillover
priming effects, and network theory.
