A Message from the Council Chair
On behalf of the faculty in the arts areas we extend a warm welcome to the faculty and students in the Department of Communication. In the transition from the College of the Visual and Performing Arts to the College of Communication and the Arts (CoCA), we believe that we have moved closer to the many possibilities of integrated studies as well as toward a transformative curriculum with greater relevancy in today’s world. We welcome the exciting possibilities.
The College Council serves as the legislative branch of the College and oversees its academic policies, curricula, academic programs, academic standards, and its degree requirements. The Council is composed of two representatives from each department and this year includes Deborah Orloff and Thor Mednick from art; Sumitra Srinivasan and Paul Fritz from communication; Lee Heritage and myself from music; and Matt Yockey and Daniel Thobias from theatre/film. Our first and major task this year is to revise the college’s constitution. Should any faculty member wish the Council to discuss an item, please feel free to contact any of its members.
Last year the college brought the university and Toledo communities exciting array of art openings, many wonderful musical and theatrical performances, and an excellent film series. With the addition of the communication department, similar opportunities will surely increase in number.
We hope you have an excellent and productive year.
Raymond Marchionni, chair
