Loyola at a Glance
Faculty heads out west to reconnect with Denver alumni
August 6, 2010
School of Mass Communication Director Sonya Duhé, Ph.D., will join public relations program chair Cathy Rogers, Ph.D., in presenting “Growing in Knowledge & Deepening Our Faith: Loyola's School of Mass Communication and the Community,” to the Denver chapter of the Loyola University New Orleans Alumni Association tomorrow night.
Duhé and Rogers will present an update about the school ’s community engagement locally and nationally in response to the oil spill, the upcoming fifth anniversary of Katrina and to general challenges faced in higher education and by Jesuit colleges and universities.
“We are thrilled to be reconnecting with graduates from the Denver area,” Duhé said. “We want them to know that while our region and university faced major challenges over the last five years, we have met them head on. This is an opportunity for us to showcase the many great things happening within Loyola and the School of Mass Communication.”
Duhé and Rogers will also share their response to a recently attended conference in which more than 85 media and communication faculty from U.S. Catholic colleges and universities examined the relationship between the tradition, mission and identity of Catholic higher education institutions and their communication programs.
In light of the recent events in southeast Louisiana, a portion of the proceeds will support Loyola University New Orleans professors and centers engaged in coastal restoration research and activities.
