Department of Communication

Director of Forensics Position

Forensics/ Rhetoric

Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) / Conversion (ABD)



The CSU Fresno Department of Communication regrets to announce that the Director of Debate position has been subjected to a hiring freeze for the 2008-09 academic year and we will not be able to go forward with our search this year. The hiring freeze is due to changing circumstances in the state budget and it is not a reflection on the credentials of candidates who have applied.

The Communication Department remains strongly committed to reestablishing a strong policy debate program. We will continue to work on building the foundation for a strong program, including fundraising efforts to establish additional funding sources for the team.

We will notify the policy debate community through appropriate channels when the position is unfrozen and we are allowed to go forward with a search. Anyone interested in the position can keep in contact with the search chair:

Dr. Douglas Fraleigh
