Department of Communications

University of North Alabama


The Department of Communications welcomes Rylee Lefevre as our first-ever social media and digital content producer. Rylee is a senior Mass Communication major studying Public Relations, and she is also vice president of UNA PRide, the department’s student Public Relations organization. Our department hasn’t been as active on social media as we need to be, so Rylee will help us tell the stories that make the Department of Communications a great place to work and study. You can find links to the MyUNACom Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages on our home page.


Plans for our inaugural Graduate School Fair are coming along well. Students from all majors are invited to our event on Oct. 15. You can find the event’s flyer on our home page until then. Representatives from Communication graduate programs at Kennesaw State University, Auburn University, and the University of Alabama will be here to answer questions, provide advice, and recruit UNA students for their respective graduate programs.  


The UNA College of Arts and Sciences is prioritizing planned giving, and the College wants to make it as easy as possible for donors to contribute to their preferred programs. The Department of Communications already features a “Donate Now” button on the upper right side of our home page, and it takes you here: We are grateful to our past and current donors, and I would welcome the opportunity to discuss specific funding opportunities with anyone who is considering supporting the Department of Communications.


Roar Lions!
