2011 Communicator magazine


Published on



This magazine is written just for you,
the friends and alumni of the college. It’s
one way we share many of the college’s
accomplishments during the year. This
year, there are many points of pride.

The National Research Council issued
its evaluation of graduate programs naming
ours the best communication college
in the country. Of 83 communication
doctoral programs that participated we
were the only university that had two
programs in the top 10, both of which are
in this college.

Alumni Craig Murray and Linda Chapman
Stone received prestigious MSU Grand
Awards. Marcie and the late Ed Schalon
were honored for their philanthropy to the
university at the awards ceremony.
As of January, Diane Neal became our
Alumni Board president. Diane is a true
advocate for our college and a wonderful
leader of our board. Jef Richards began his
role as the new
chair of the Department
of Advertising,
and Retailing
also in January.
This past year, we conducted searches
for seven new faculty members. As fall approaches,
we will welcome these talented
scholars to our college. You can learn
more about them on page 21.
This fall, we launch our new integrated
media arts program in the Media
Sandbox. This program will be a boon to
creative students who want to start early
and learn fast about all of the multimedia
tools in high demand by employers today.
Read about it on page 20.
Our researchers are hard at work on
projects that seek to enrich and improve
our lives. Our faculty members submitted
116 grant proposals last year - more
than the number of faculty we have. This
summer, our graduate students received
more than $100,000 in funds to conduct
independent summer research, with expectations
to publish and present at conferences.
In addition, your support helps to
guide much of our activity and progress,
and we are thankful for all contributions.
This year, expendable funds were donated
by alumni allowing immediate internship
scholarship opportunities for 25-30
students – across the U.S. and the world.
We are working to build our pipeline of
alumni, corporations and foundations
who want to be more active and support
the college’s fi nancial future. There are
many ways to
make this happen,
and we
have a talented
team who can
answer every question you might have.
This team includes our new alumni relations
professional Lauren Lepkowski (BA
‘11 Communication).
As we move forward with our goals,
we want you to be involved. We know we
can do it. We have a plan. We have a team.
We have proud alumni. We are Spartans.

She participated in the Technology and Culture: Communication and Games in Japan study abroad program this summer. “Studying abroad in Japan was one of the best experiencesI’ve ever had. Meeting and conversing with Japanese universitystudents, visiting major companies, and sightseeing across the country were all incredible opportunities that I would have never experienced if I hadn’t chosen to study abroad. I also met and got to know fellow MSU students who I never would have gotten to know otherwise. Studying abroad in Japan was a once in a lifetime opportu- nity, and I’m so grateful I experienced it.”

The documentary, produced by Bob Gould and Sue Carter from the School of Journalism, focused on MSU’s work and progress in Malawi to help children who contract malaria. The documentary highlights the work being done by MSU facultymember Terrie Taylor over the past 24 years in Malawi, includinga $9.1 million federal grant to create new prevention and controlstrategies in the small African nation. In this photo, producer and faculty member Bob Gould gave the Malawi children the chance to record some of their surroundings. He promptly snapped the moment with his camera.

The country was incredibly beautiful, and the people were very helpful and polite. I was always impressed at how hard the locals tried to help me and my fellow classmates when we had a question. The technology was also remarkable, the cell phones we saw had 1080p streaming, which is full HD, and used 18megapixel cameras. I also learned about augmented reality, which is the concept of using an everyday object and altering one’s perception of it through a device such as a computer. Through this trip to Japan, I was also able to reunite with my grandfather, who I have only met once before. We were able to spend the afternoon together, and it also gave me a good opportunity to really practice my Japanese. I would like to once again express my thanks for the scholarship that assisted in making this study abroad opportunity possible.” Rebecca Konishi media arts and technology student Contact the CAS Office of Advancement at 517-432-6514 or make a gift online at:

Prepare tomorrow’sGLOBAL COMMUNICATORS today.Help a student complete a degree from the MSUCollege of Communication Arts & Sciences,one of the nation’s largest, oldest and bestcommunication programs.“Michigan State University and the College ofCommunication Arts & Sciences createopportunities – opportunities to explore, grow,and dream big. When I started as afreshman, I immediately realized that many ofthese experiences were available because ofthe legacies of the Spartans before me.To me, “alumni” has become another word for“family.” Knowing that I received support fromthe MSU community means so much more tome than just being able to pay for my intern-ship expenses and provides encouragementin how I strive to use my degree.If every CAS student has a chance to feel thesame support that I do from alumni like you,there is no limit to the ways that we willimpact this world. That’s why the collegewants to continue helping students achievesuccess by growing its Strategic Opportuni-ties Fund. This fund provides students like mewith opportunities to receive scholarshipsand fellowships, in addition to supportingother student needs within the college.”Hanna BurmeisterCommunication majorSparta, MIContact the CAS Office of Advancementat 517-432-6514 or make a gift online
