ECAThree undergraduate students from the Mount presented their research at the 2018 Eastern Communication Association (ECA) Conference held in Pittsburgh from Wednesday, April 25 to Sunday, April 29: Megan Schultz, Jordan Rodriguez, and Ellen Salvatore.
 
Megan was from the Learning to Write/Writing to Learn class of Mary Catherine Kennedy, Ph.D., Assistant Professor from the Department of Communication, while Jordan Rodriguez and Ellen Salvatore were from the Writing for Catholic Media class of Brian Gilchrist, Ph.D., Assistant Professor from the Department of Communication.
 
These students had their research papers accepted by the Undergraduate Scholars Conference at ECA. What's even more inspiring is that the Mount represented three of the 105 accepted research papers. Rodriguez and Salvatore presented at their second consecutive ECA Conference.
 
Papers Presented:
 
Jordan Rodriguez - “Crisis of Our Time: The Communication Ethics of the Catholic Church’s Response to the European Refugee Crisis”
 
Ellen Salvatore - “The Movement is Brotherhood: A Communication Ethics Analysis of Saint Francis of Assisi”
 
Megan Schultz - “Redefining Masculinity in One Night Stands”
 
Congratulations to these students for their exceptional work in writing and communication!
