About James Rediger

Along with serving as the Communication Studies Internship Coordinator, Dr. Rediger now teaches an exciting new course: COMM 100: Fundamentals of Intergroup Dialogue. This course provides a forum in which students who possess different life experiences, worldviews, interests and aspirations learn to engage in transformative discussions designed to bridge those differences. The facilitator-led dialogue format allows participants to better understand their own and others’ perspectives, explore ideas and address conflict through collaboration. If he is not in his office with Sinatra playing in the background, he can be found playing his trumpet at Urban Light Community Church, or with Oldfield and the New Birds. He is also an avid runner and Ultimate Frisbee player, and will tell you that his favorite thing in the world is his family.
