Dr. Marnel Niles Goins was named to lead American University’s School of Communication.  She was most recently the dean of the College of Sciences and Humanities and professor of communication at Marymount University. Under her leadership, the college established four new majors and one school, improved retention and enrollment, and increased fundraising and scholarship production. Prior to her appointment at Marymount University, she was a full professor in the Department of Communication at California State University, Fresno.

Dr. Niles Goins, states a release, specializes in racial and gender dynamics in organizational settings, including higher education. Through her work, she brings to light the intersections of varying oppressions. Her scholarship in Organizational and Small Group Communication engages the Black and Black female communities and aids in increasing the understanding of them as individuals, groups, and organizations. She has remained active in publishing, attending conferences, and serving as a reviewer for communication journals since becoming an administrator.

With nearly 1,500 students and 19 undergraduate and graduate degree and certificate programs, the School of Communication is a leader in journalism, communications, PR and media arts studies. Known for its best-in-class curriculum, which is centered around a balance of hands-on experiential learning and in-depth research and analysis, students have many opportunities to gain real world experience on- and off-campus to propel them into their post-grad careers. The School of Communication is also home to several academic centers, where students and professors work together on cutting-edge research and produce transformative media in the fields of social justice, environmentalism, gaming and more.
