Bill Bolduc (Ph.D. Mass Communication, Florida State University) is an associate professor of communication studies at UNCW focusing on digital media production and media studies.  As a student of mass communication at his alma mater, Miami University (Ohio), he participated in Laws Hall & Associates, an applied learning program comprised of marketing, art and media students.  That experience contributed to his desire to work with Dr. Persuit in creating a student run agency at UNCW.
