Redbird Plaza, in the shadow of Fell Hall, is a popular stop during a college visit to Illinois State.

During this calendar year of 2018, School of Communication faculty have been active in contributing knowledge to the communication field and in their areas of specialty. Here is a rundown of publications and public contributions that many of our faculty have made this year.

NOTE: Because our faculty often collaborate with others inside and outside the School, their names may not be the first ones listed, but they are there.
