|Faculty Member Published|
An innovative book co-authored by Capitol College
adjunct faculty member Mitchell Tropin was published this fall, covering a wide
array of communications topics. The book, Currents
in Communication, was co-written with Dr. Russell Cook and Dr. Elliot King,
communications professors at Loyola
University, and published
by Kendall Hunt.
"The book was written as an alternative to costly
communications textbooks that are out-of-date after one year," says Tropin.
"Our book is designed to stay on students' shelves years after they graduate.
We are very proud of this book and hope that it will give students the edge
they need in their communications studies."
|Women in Engineering |
Being a woman in a field traditionally filled with males is
a challenge for some, but not for Andrea Razzaghi, the assistant director/planetary
science division at NASA Headquarters. This fall's first presenter in the ILI
Speaker Series, Razzaghi's experiences in STEM fields, especially engineering,
serve to encourage all students who want a career in astronautical engineering.
Razzaghi remembers being blissfully ignorant of challenges
faced by women and minorities in the industry early on in her education, which
she attributes to caring and supportive mentors and career counselors who didn't
mention to her how tough it would be to become a successful engineer, only that
she would be interested in the subject matter. Read more...
"I was once asked how I thought other black women in my
field felt about their experiences, and I responded that I couldn't speak for
the group, because I was the only one I knew of!"
