Department of Communication Studies

Penny O’Connor

Adjunct Instructor


Courses Taught

I have been teaching at UNI since 1988, in the area of speech communication. While my primary commitment is to the Oral Communication course, I have also taught classes in Listening, BPOC, Interviewing, Interpersonal and Public Speaking.

Personal/Professional Interests

I earned my B.A. in Radio-TV and M.A. in Speech, both from UNI. I love UNI so much that I came here when I was 18, and still haven't left! Teaching is the best job in the world, and our students make it even better. My husband Jim also works on campus, and we have three children, Lucy, Sean and Maggie Rose.
