Mass Comm Welcomes New Faculty

On Wednesday night, the College of Mass Communications formally welcomed its new faculty members to Texas Tech. Although festivities are not normally my strong suit, I quite enjoyed myself at the event.

The university's provost had many kind words to say about the college, and it was impressive that so many of our administrators turned out to meet us. There were also several members of the Lubbock mass communications industry present -- an interaction that characterizes our desire to stay relevant to industry.

The reception was yet one more piece of evidence suggesting how many good things are going on in this college. We're hiring four new faculty members this year (photojournalism, video production, and a junior and senior position in public relations), and I already am looking forward to next year's new faculty reception.
