The Ohio University Scripps College of Communication is a leader in communication education—and it is the pride of Ohio University. Generally regarded as one of the top five programs in the nation, Scripps prepares students to be effective and responsible communicators in a global society and advances the field through creative activity and research on communication concepts, issues and problems. Since its founding 40 years ago, Scripps has grown from just two schools – communication and journalism – to five schools offering more than 40 nationally acclaimed programs. These range from the very technical in the J. Warren McClure School of Information and Telecommunication Systems to the deeply theoretical in the School of Communication Studies – and everything in between in the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, and the Schools of Media Arts and Studies and Visual Communication. In May 2006, the University received a commitment of $15 million from the Scripps Howard Foundation and the college was named in its honor. Scripps also houses the WOUB Public Media, which operates five public radio stations, two public television stations and one cable television station serving more than 60 counties. Through the center’s Student Development Program, more than 250 of the college’s students gain hands-on radio and television experience by assisting with the stations’ day-to-day operations. Scripps has been recognized as “one of Ohio University’s most distinguished programs” by the Guide to 101 of the Best Values in America’s Colleges and Universities. In the fall of 2010, Scripps was named a Center of Excellence in the state of Ohio. Scripps alumni number 26,000 worldwide and are some of the most recognizable names, successful leaders and notable contributors in the field of communication.

Communication Fellows update! Lauren Scotta is a second- and third-grade gifted intervention specialist at Gilles-Sweet Elementary School in Fairview Park. Utilizing an array of communication technology such as audio podcasting, digital video and Virtual Reality, Scotta’s project focuses on helping students identify, communicate and understand their feelings.

She and her students are understanding what podcasts are through listening and discussion. Additionally, they have used iPads and some programs that are similar to VR for a project to gain greater depth and understanding. Each morning, they work on a social emotional activity, discussion question, and greeting of others. This has prompted and promoted communication and beginning talks about emotional understanding.

Communication Fellows update! Laura Moore is an English teacher at Newark Digital Academy. Her students are currently researching how the government in the state of Ohio works and researching education issues. Moore is really excited for students to start using their voices to share their ideas and opinions with school administrators and state representatives.

Moore states, “it has been really interesting to read student’s first writing assignment about their school experiences so far and ideas about what education is and should be. I don’t think students get asked enough about what they want out of their education, and they seem excited to be able to think about that and share their views.”

On Nov. 20, 1969, the Cleveland Plain Dealer published photographs depicting the bloodshed of hundreds of civilians in a South Vietnamese village, an event that would come to be known as the My Lai Massacre. The photos were taken by Army combat photographer and former Ohio University student Ron Haeberle.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the publication of Haeberle’s photographs, the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism hosted a panel discussion in the Schoonover Center for Communication.

Veteran journalist Seymour Hersh, who won a Pulitzer Prize for breaking the My Lai story, and David Crane (BA ’72 and MA ‘73), former chief prosecutor for the United Nations Special Court for Sierra Leone, joined Haeberle on the panel. Andy Alexander, former Washington Post ombudsman (BSJ ‘72), a Scripps Howard Visiting Professional in the Scripps College of Communication, served as moderator.
