Mike Foley

Master Lecturer and Hugh Cunningham Professor in Journalism Excellence

"I’ve had 9,000 students. I don’t apologize for being rigorous. I do get thank-you notes from people a year out . . . It’s very gratifying. I’m rough but fair, and I’m willing to help anybody who wants to come to office hours."

College of Journalism and Communications

Andrew Telles

Director of Collaborative Initiatives

"The essence of what we want to do is create value for the community as well as a sense of responsibility at the university and individual level. Responsibility means that we have to look outside of our campus borders and take into consideration the interests and needs of other stakeholders — locally, regionally and internationally."

Administration

Carol Enoch

Administrative Support Assistant, Office for Diversity and Health Equity

"The relationships we maintain here are extremely important. The students often come into our office looking for someone to talk to or a hug. . . . They know we’re here for them. They trust us." (Carol, far left, is pictured with colleagues at the 2018 Office for Diversity and Health Equity's graduation luncheon for underrepresented and minority medical students.)
