CI Professor To Receive Renowned Award From The BEA

Published: Mar 27, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 27, 2014) — Douglas A. Boyd, a professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Kentucky College of Communication and Information, will receive the 2014 Broadcast Education Association’s (BEA) Distinguished Education Service Award (DESA) Sunday, April 6, at the BEA's annual convention in Las Vegas.

 

Boyd is not only a professor of communication, he also teaches in the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce. He has held multiple administrative positions since his arrival at UK in 1987, including dean of the College of Communication and Information Studies (currently named College of Communication and Information), associate provost for international affairs, and chief of staff in the Office of the President.

 

Current dean of the College of Communication and Information and long time associate of Boyd, Dan O’Hair shares his thoughts about the presentation of the DESA to Boyd.

 

“This is one of the most prestigious awards in higher education, and it is most fitting that Professor Boyd is this year’s recipient. Doug epitomizes excellence in education whether in the classroom, on doctoral student committees, or in advancing policy issues that raise the bar in media and communication education,” O’Hair said. “He is one of the best-known and most respected educators in our profession. We are privileged to have him as our UK colleague.”

 

The award goes to an individual who has made a significant impact on electronic media education in the U.S. Throughout his professional career, Boyd has done just that, finding great success in many areas of the industry and producing work that spans international boundaries.

 

He has been a commercial broadcaster, an employee of the U.S. Department of Defense in Saudi Arabia, an employee and consultant at the Voice of America, and worked at the British Broadcasting Corporation’s Office of International Broadcasting and Research in London. Boyd has also written multiple books regarding broadcast media in other countries and in total has produced more than 60 refereed academic publications.
