Stephen Tropiano, Los Angeles Program director and associate professor in the Department of Television-Radio, has been appointed by John Shaffner, president of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, to co-chair the Governors Awards Committee for the 2011 Emmys.
The Governors Award is presented each year to one or more individuals, companies, or organizations for outstanding achievement in the arts and sciences or management of television. Tropiano is also currently serving on the selection committee for the 4th Annual “Television Academy Honors,” which recognizes “television with a conscience”---programming that inspires, informs, motivates, and even has the power to change people’s lives.
Four student teams from the Park School of Communications submitted their projects for presentation at National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR). All four were accepted. The students conducted their research as part of the Critical Issues course (STCM 45000) offered in the Department of Strategic Communication.
NCUR brings together young scholars from a wide variety of higher education institutions presenting on a diverse set of topics. The conference has thousands of students and their faculty mentors presenting their research. The STCM faculty are very proud of these students, especially Dr. Gordon Rowland who taught and advised these students in the Critical Issues course. Congratulations to:
Joe Bagliere, a Television-Radio major with a concentration in International Communications, was honored during his Semester at Sea program. Bagliere was included as part of Archbishop Desmond Tutu's delegation when Tutu received the Millennium Excellence Award in Ghana in September. Archbishop Tutu is being recognized for his efforts to promote human rights and to eradicate malaria, tuberculosis, and HIV/AIDS in Africa. Bagliere attended the delegation with SAS Academic Dean David Gies and four other students.
Jack Powers, assistant professor in the Department of Television-Radio, was recently accepted as a National Association of Television Program Executives (NATPE) Faculty Fellow. Only 25 NATPE fellows are named across the United States each year.
The goal of the Faculty Fellowship Program is twofold: to expose the educational community to current television issues and practices, and to foster improved communication and cooperation between educators and the industry.
