National Communication Association's Rex Mix

Speech Program Wins National Award

We are delighted to announce that Dartmouth College's Speech program received the NCA's Rex Mix award this year. Each year the National Communication Association awards the Rex Mix Program of Excellence Award to the nation's "top undergraduate communication program." Nominated programs are evaluated for excellence in curriculum, program quality, course design, and special programs. We are delighted to announce that Dartmouth College's Speech program received the NCA's Rex Mix award this year.

The award is a welcome recognition for the program's recent advancements. Helmed by professors Josh Compton, Darlene K. Drummond, and Svetlana Grushina, the Speech program at Dartmouth has undergone something of a renaissance over the past ten years. In 2008, the program offered only three courses; since that time the curriculum has increased more than fourfold and now includes cutting-edge classes in health communication, sustainablity rhetoric, credibility, new media, political humor, and social justice. Despite its modest size and origins, the program now enjoys a remarkable popularity and exercises potent influence on Dartmouth's campus and the surrounding community.
