Have you met our newest faculty member? We have, and she is great!
The Department of Communication is thrilled to welcome our newest colleague Dr. Audra Nuru. Audra recently completed her PhD at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Her work examines how individuals from minority social groups communicate to make sense of themselves, their relationships, and their relational roles. Her research on multiethnic-racial identity has been recognized by non-profit organizations in the southeast for linking research with praxis. Further, she has worked with family therapists and guidance counselors to design workshops, seminars and outreach programs to facilitate the development of healthy self-concepts among multiethnic/racial and LBGTQ communities. She has earned fellowships with the University of Georgia to do research in Costa Rica and has studied at the Sorbonne in Paris, France. Welcome Audra! be sure to stop by and say hello and welcome her to campus. Her office is on the second floor of DMH, right next to Dr. Zhang.
