Staff

One of the Annenberg School's greatest assets is its staff — a talented and dedicated group of people who share their expertise and devote their efforts to support the mission of the school and its research centers. 

Administrative Governance

The Annenberg School has 31 staff members who support the academic mission of the School as well as dozens of staff members who support specific research centers and projects within the School. The support staff is organized into the following departments, with the exception of the undergraduate and graduate studies offices, the directors of each reporting directly to and meeting regularly with the Dean.
