Congratulations to Dr. Nicky Lewis, who was awarded the Early Career Research Award by the Sports Communication Interest Group of the International Communication Association (ICA) at their 2020 convention.
Our students worked incredibly hard to reach the milestone of their college graduation, and not even a global pandemic was going to stop us from recognizing their accomplishment. On May 8th, we held an online ceremony to bring together students, faculty, staff, family, and friends to celebrate our graduates and show our Wildcat pride. You can view the video of the ceremony here.
Unprecedented times call for creative solutions. The 2020 Kentucky Conference on Health Communication was scheduled for the first week of April, just when the pandemic hit the U.S. in full force. With only weeks to prepare, the entire conference was shifted to a fully virtual platform. Over 2.5 days, there were 280 attendees, 200 presenters, and 185 posters. In total there were 115 universities and organizations, 31 states (plus the District of Columbia), and 9 countries represented!
Congratulations to our College of Communication and Information Excellence Award winners! We weren’t able to come together for an awards dinner this year, but we were able to surprise each winner live via Zoom.
