New Communication Faculty Member Named


The College of Humanities and Behavioral Sciences is pleased to announce that Mr. Christopher Keith Hull will join the School of Communication as a Special Purpose Faculty Member beginning August 2021. 

Mr. Hull is currently an adjunct instructor with the School and received both the Outstanding Graduate Student and Outstanding Teaching Awards as a 2020 graduate of its master’s program in Strategic Communication. In addition, he received his Bachelor of Arts in Theatre/Television Production, with honors at graduation, from California State University, Fullerton.

Mr. Hull arrives with a passion for societal engagement and diverse background in education, media production, stage and screen performance, and political action. His recent teaching assignments include courses in public speaking and media production. Previous educator experience includes courses in stage and screen performance, direction, production, and design.

Before joining the Highlander family, Mr. Hull spent ten years with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation portraying our nation’s first professor of law and signer of the Declaration of Independence, George Wythe. (Yes, the namesake for our adjoining county.) That opportunity to share with hundreds of thousands of visitors our nation’s founding and perpetual principles firmly entrenched his passion for linking social and political engagement with the power of communication. His on-screen work appears on the Smithsonian Channel, the American Hero’s Channel, and at the newly opened National Museum of the United States Army in Fort Belvoir, Virginia.

Mr. Hull resides in a 100% Highlander Household. His wife, Kathryn Burnham-Hull, is also a member of the RU family as Instructor/Assistant Technical Director/Scene Shop Foreman with our Department of Theatre.

Please welcome Mr. Hull to the full-time faculty this fall.
