Our people — faculty, students, staff, and alumni — are the heart of the Annenberg School for Communication.

A graduate school’s character comes from its people. Members of the Annenberg School community include our world-class standing faculty, as well as our many visiting scholars, research staff, postdoctoral fellows, and lecturers; the dynamic and hard-working graduate students who come from all over the world and bring to the School a diversity of research interests and points of view; a support staff that is deeply dedicated to making the school successful; and our alumni who are applying the tools they learned at Annenberg to the major challenges of our day.
