A new face will soon be seen around the Adler Journalism Building.

David Ryfe, who currently serves as the academic head of the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada-Reno, has been appointed to be the director of the UI School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Prior to joining faculty at the UI, Ryfe held a professorship at Middle Tennessee State University and teaching positions at the University of California-Berkeley and the University of California-San Diego.

He will succeed interim director Julie Andsager.

Andsager was appointed after former Director David Perlmutter announced he was stepping down last year to seek a position at Texas Tech University.

Ryfe will begin his appointment to the UI in the summer.
