WSSU scholar selected for service program

Dr. Andrea Patterson-Masuka, associate professor in the Department of Communication and Media Studies, has been selected for the Whisenton Public Scholars Program, an initiative that investigates ways faculty from various disciplines can institute public scholarship and serve their local communities. 

The two-year program, through the Kettering Foundation and Joffre T. Whisenton and Associates, encourages scholars to experiment with elements of citizen-centered democracy, such as naming and framing issues as well as making choices together in the context of teaching, research and service. 

The program, for faculty and administrators that serve minority communities, will culminate in a project that will help the university’s faculty and students engage in public deliberation and scholarship with the local community.
