Welcome from the Dean | LSU Manship School of Mass Communication


Welcome from the Interim Dean

Dear Students, Alumni, Colleagues and Friends,

Welcome to LSU’s Manship School of Mass Communication. I became interim dean in October 2020 after the sudden and tragic loss of Martin Johnson, our beloved former dean. While we were all shocked to hear of Dean Johnson’s passing, every day we’re reminded of his impact on us all. Martin was an amazing leader, mentor and friend, and I am honored to have this opportunity to help carry out his vision and work with the resilient, incredible students, faculty and staff of the Manship School. I also look forward to working with all of the great leaders of this institution.
