Paul E. Nelson North Dakota State University, USA
Hired by NDSU in the year 2000 to chair the Department of Communication and to launch a new doctoral program with my spouse, Dr. Judy C. Pearson, I am now head of the department. I teach undergraduate courses because that is my preference. I have professed and administered at the University of Missouri, Iowa State University, Ohio University, and Virginia Tech, before coming to NDSU. I was Dean of the College of Communication at Ohio University for fifteen years.
I have four degrees from the University of Minnesota with post-doc work both at Harvard and at Columbia University. I have written many college textbooks with my spouse, so many that I honestly don't know the count. All I know is that we have been writing textbooks for three decades.
