David Dzikowski, Ines Meyer-Hoess, and Amber Walker Jackson promoted to Senior Lecturer

Three of our CAS instructors, David Dzikowski, Ines Meyer-Hoess, and Amber Walker Jackson, have all been promoted to Senior Lecturer.

David Dzikowski teaches public speaking (CAS 100A and CAS 100C) and public address studies (CAS 475).  His research focuses on the history of rhetoric, presidential rhetoric, and the rhetoric of film, radio, television, and music.  These research interests advance and inform his teaching strategies through depth of content and breadth of examples in classroom lectures and activities.

Ines Meyer-Hoess is the lead faculty and organizer of the department's study abroad program in Vienna, Austria. An Austrian native, Ines came to the United States in 1998 to pursue a Master’s Degree in Communication at Boise State University after completing graduate school at the University of Vienna. Ines worked as a political consultant before attending the School of International Service at American University in Washington, D.C., where she focused on International Politics and International Communication. Ines became a CAS-faculty member in 2006 after teaching Marketing at Penn State's Smeal College of Business. What Ines finds most rewarding is the opportunity to connect with the many dedicated, hard-working Penn State students she works with on campus, online, and abroad.

Amber Walker Jackson teaches a variety of classes in the department, from communication and information technology (CAS 283) to several of the public speaking courses (100A, 100B, 100E) and studies family and relational communication. She is thrilled about the new title and about being able to continuing to teach classes she loves in this wonderful department.

Please join us in congratulating these three on their accomplishments! Bravo!
