Name:  Dr. Darrell Roe, Assistant Professor of Communication

ENMU Role:  Faculty / Mentor

ENMU Email:  darrell.roe@enmu.edu

Preferred method of contact:  Email

Office Phone:  575-562-4726

Office Location:   COM, Room 103

Home Town:  McGregor, Texas

Cultural Background:  From Texas, but have lived in OK, GA, NY, and now NM. I love being around a variety of cultures in every aspect of life!

Other Languages:   German (Intermediate)

  • Education:  Ph.D. in Mass Communication (1998) from University of Georgia.  Research Interests: Political Communication, particularly, the Twitter communication of President Trump; also, the effects of mass communication, especially TV and film.
  • Additional Information:  Serving on several committees.
  • One challenge I experienced in college was I had to figure out the college experience by myself, first by living on campus one semester, then commuting from home (20 miles). Both as an undergrad and as a grad student, I had to figure out what it meant to be a full-time college student and how to manage my time--which I didn't do very well until I was probably a senior or later!  I'm not technically a first-generation student, as my parents had some college, but I didn't realize the importance of socializing and being involved in extra-curricular activities and organizations. If I had to do it all again, I would really do this!
    • Also, I tended to see professors as obstacles to my learning, rather than as facilitators, and some of them really were! But I could have made much stronger and more fulfilling connections with them, also, if I had been more open to that.
  • I am a Greyhound Connection Mentor because I would like to be a resource for anyone who may need a listening-ear or help studying or preparing, including writing papers or doing research. But also, I would like to go to university or community events with people, such as athletics, theater, music, and socials, to help folks see how beneficial and fun these can be!
