The Skip Landen Professional in Residence Series was established in the Roy H. Park School of Communications to bring alumni media professionals to campus each year to meet and work with students. The series is named after filmmaker and professor emeritus of cinema and photography Gustav "Skip" Landen. Skip will be on campus this week to also visit with students and to provide Jay's lecture introduction.
