#RUFacultyFriday: Dr. Pam Wilson

With her passion for visual and written communication, Dr. Pam Wilson has used this love to impact students both in and out of the classroom. Wilson believes that professors are present to help students grow and prepare them for the real world; for what is being taught inside the class can often be applied to other aspects of a student’s life.

“Professors are here to help students learn. That can happen in many different ways, and each professor I know has a repertoire of teaching techniques, none better than another. Our job is not necessarily to convey books full of facts and knowledge directly from our minds to those of our students through lectures—that is a very old-fashioned notion of a professor. Sometimes, students learn best by doing, experiencing, talking, making, reading, watching and collaborating.”

Wilson first arrived at Reinhardt in the fall of 1999, during a time where the communication program was just in its beginning phase. Being that this was the case, Wilson would have a hand in every step of the program’s growing process and would help shape what it is today.

With a B.A. in cultural anthropology from Bryn Mawr College, an M.A. in Linguistic Anthropology from the University of Texas, as well as Radio, TV, & Film from the University of North Carolina, and a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin in Communication Arts, Wilson is someone who is knowledgeable on the subjects she teaches and uses this expertise to help expand the minds of every student who gets the opportunity to partake in one of the many classes she teaches at Reinhardt.

Wilson is among the many professors/mentors at Reinhardt who are here to see students reach their potential and beyond during their time in school and later in life. Dr. Wilson, your efforts and passion for everything you do here at Reinhardt University are greatly appreciated, and for that, we thank you. 

Dr. Pamela Wilson
