Full-Time Faculty

Our faculty members are top academics and practitioners in their fields who are passionate about their students, research and work. They advance intellectual thought by publishing books, authoring journal articles and contributing to government reports. They are sought after voices in the media often appearing on television, radio and in major newspapers and magazines.

Their diverse work extends to producing documentaries, plays, videos and photo essays to tell stories about the world, but all SMPA faculty share one common mission — to mentor students and prepare the next generation of media professionals, entrepreneurs and leaders in the public and private sectors.
