Nikhil Moro, chair of the nationally accredited Department of Mass Communications and Journalism at Norfolk State University, has been appointed the new director of the A.Q Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications.

Recognized as a visionary leader, Moro holds a national reputation as a scholar and teacher of digital media law. He currently teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in media law, emerging technology and international communication. Before his appointment at K-State and his leadership at Norfolk State, Moro founded and directed a research collective in South Asian Media, Culture & Arts at the University of North Texas. He has led collaborations with four universities in India and also wrote or edited several newspapers, including The Networker, Columbus; Coffeeland News, Madikeri; The Times of India, Mumbai; Andolana, Mysore; and Readers Digest. He received a doctorate in communication law from the Ohio State University in fall 2006. 

"We are pleased to announce the hiring of Dr. Nikhil Moro as director for the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications," said Dean Amit Chakrabarti. "With Dr. Moro's national reputation in digital media law and leadership qualities, we are confident that he will take the school of journalism and mass communication to a higher level of distinction."

Moro continues to serve on several editorial boards, consults frequently in internet law and co-edits the Journal of Contemporary Thought. He will officially join the K-State family in July.
