Service to the School, the University, and the academy is also expected. About the Richard Cole Eminent Professorship:

The Richard Cole Eminent Professorship was established to recognize the enormous contributions of Dr. Richard Cole, Dean of the School from 1979 to 2005. Cole led the School to national and international prominence. In summer 1992, Cole received the Freedom Forum Medal for Distinguished Accomplishments in Journalism-Mass Communication Administration. Cole held many other national and international roles influential to the journalism and mass communication fields. About the Hussman School of Journalism and Media:

The Hussman School affirms that hiring and tenure and promotion decisions should be the purview of faculty and appropriate university bodies. We are a diverse, collaborative group of researchers who address questions in media processes and production; legal and regulatory issues in communication; media uses and effects; health communication; and political, social, and strategic communication. We are also diverse in methodological approaches and welcome scholars who bridge methodological and theoretical traditions. We have strong interdisciplinary partners with the School of Information and Library Science and Gillings School of Global Public Health, and with the School of Law we operate the UNC Center for Media Law and Policy, which includes a graduate- level dual degree program. We also have ties with Computer Science, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, Women's and Gender Studies, and other departments and schools at the university.

In addition to its robust undergraduate programs in journalism, advertising, and public relations, graduate program offerings within the School include the Ph.D. in Media and Communication, the M.A. in Media and Communication, the online M.A. in Digital Communication, and a post-baccalaureate certificate program in digital communication.
