|College of Communications earns
Good news for the College of
Communications, which was awaiting word on a bid for reaccreditation .
. . the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass
Communications, meeting recently in San Jose, Calif., reviewed the
evaluation team report and the Accrediting Committee's recommendation
and approved ASU unanimously, without comment. This meeting
was the last step in the reaccreditation process. Only two other
schools passed without comment, reflecting an extra measure of respect
for ASU's self-study and the program.
The team had found ASU to be in compliance on all 12 standards.
A letter from ACEJMC is expected within the next few weeks, officially
notifying ASU of the vote.
Congratulations to the faculty, staff and students of the College of
editing book on crime
We heard it first in the May 9 edition of the Wall
Street Journal . . . a brief mentioned that an ASU professor is editing
the Encyclopedia of White-Collar and Corporate Crime. It's Dr. Larry Salinger, Criminology, who says he is under
contract with Golson Books, Ltd. as general editor of the volume
to be published by Sage Publications next year. Salinger said
there is an honorarium for each article, and the topics are
sufficiently diverse that faculty in a variety of disciplines could
contribute. For a list of
topics and details about writing for the encyclopedia, he recommends
contacting Geoff Golson at email@example.com.
expertise benefits community
Dr. David Gilmore, Biological Sciences,
provided scientific and laboratory expertise last week for a two-part
story on KAIT-TV about our daily exposure to bacteria. He helped
collect and analyze specimens to help people better understand their
risks. Other recent faculty and staff achievements are listed in Campus News.
