The Art of Positive Communication for Scholars: Small Actions to Influence and Inspire Others

In his book Scholarship Revisited, Boyer (1990) urged scholars across disciplines to re-imagine their mission in light of four values: discovery, integration, application, and teaching (later adding the scholarship of engagement). More importantly, though, this proposal was an answer to pressing questions about the profession: What does it mean to be a professor? What priorities should guide the professoriate? And what impact should professors have? In this talk, Dr. Mirivel draws on these core questions to encourage scholars across disciplines to stand as examples of their profession. He will propose that professors should communicate positively across contexts to cultivate their personal character, advance their scholarship, and preserve the core values of the professoriate. The heart of the talk will show how it can be done in small ways every day.

Dr. Julien C. Mirivel (Ph.D., University of Colorado at Boulder) is a teacher, writer, and speaker whose mission is to inspire people to communicate more positively at work and at home. He currently serves as Associate Professor of Speech Communication and Interim Associate Dean at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He is an award-winning teacher and researcher whose work is impacting how people interact with one another. His book, “The Art of Positive Communication,” offers a research-based model of positive communication that can be used by anyone who wants to create better social worlds.
