Dr. Abbey Levenshus
Associate Professor and Chair, Department of Strategic Communication, Department of Strategic Communication
I’m a firm believer that the communications strategist at every corporation or nonprofit plays an integral role in ensuring the health of the company. Strategic communication is much more than writing a press release or posting to social media. It’s a science into understanding how to cut through the clutter and deliver a specific message to a specific audience at a specific time on a specific device. A professional of any age who has invested the time to dive deeper into strategic communication through Butler’s master’s program is even more marketable, as it demonstrates a keen desire to be a problem solver.
