About the speaker

Cal U alumnus Dante Morelli earned a bachelor’s degree in communication studies, summa cum laude, in 2002. While at Cal U he was a student member of the Council of Trustees and president of the Student Association Inc.

Morelli went on to earn a master’s degree in corporate and professional communication at Radford University in Virginia. He accepted a teaching position at Suffolk County Community College in New York, where he was an assistant professor of communication studies.
