Leeva Chung, PhD, Promoted to Professor


The Department of Communication Studies would like to congratulate Leeva Chung, PhD, who was promoted to professor.

Over the course of her career, Chung has perfected her unique experiential style, which students describe as life changing. The impact she has on students is long lasting. She remains connected to students long after they graduate, with many of them commenting on how relevant course concepts became to them as they navigate life.

As a scholar, Chung is a leader in the field regarding pedagogy and has published work on her use of exercises and other interactive strategies, which have become well known among intercultural communication teachers. Furthermore, she continues to investigate the role of popular culture and other phenomena on ethnic identity.

Chung embodies the mission of the University of San Diego through her on-going commitment to a liberal arts-centered undergraduate experience and her unwavering commitment to teaching excellence. Chung is a valuable asset to the university and will continue to inspire students, faculty, and the community for years to come.
