Maureen C. MinielliAssistant ProfessorDepartment: Communications and Performing Arts
I teach 4-5 classes/semester; serve on department, school and campus committees; attend conventions and conferences; research and publish; review books and journal articles, and serve the communication discipline in varying capacities. I am also married to a NCAA Division I head soccer coach, which primarily accounts for my previous academic positions.
