"It is insight into human nature that is the key to the communicator's skill. For whereas the writer is concerned with what he puts into his writing, the communicator is concerned with what the reader gets out of it."
  -William Bernbach, legendary figure in American advertising (1911-1982)

Dr. Jenna Ellis

Assistant Professor of Legal Studies and Communication
School of Humanities and Sciences

As a professor of legal studies and communication courses, Dr. Ellis's view is that biblical Truth is where we begin, and integrate the learning of law and media into our Christian worldview. We must start with the premise "Truth is" and work from there to glorify God in all aspects of our vocation. CCU's Strategic Objectives integrate faith and learning from the premise that everything we do is because of God's Truth.
