Administrative Plan

[Section VII of the Request for Approval to Establish the program, approved by the UNC Board of Governors, November 2004.]


The Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media program will be administered by a Director, an Associate Director, and a governing committee (see Program Committee below) drawn from the departments of Communication and English.


​Core Program Faculty as well as Affiliated Faculty will deliver the curriculum. Coordination between the program, the college, and the two major contributing departments will be accomplished by a Coordinating Committee consisting of the Program Director, the two Department Heads, and the CHASS Associate Dean for Research.

​Program Affiliated Faculty 

Graduate faculty in English, Communication, and other departments with allied interests may be designated as Affiliated Faculty; they will serve on advisory/dissertation committees and teach elective courses. Such faculty may apply or be invited to apply by the Program Committee, which will approve such applications.
