For the Spring 2014 Intern Class. Kurt Kent, Professor of Journalism and Communications since 1970, led a career as an educator before entering the administration at the College. As Director of Graduate Studies, he constructed the graduate program in the 1970s and 1980s before shifting his efforts to another passion: international studies. Founding the Florida FlyIns Program together with Dr. John Kaplan, Kent helped journalism and photography students travel Latin America to document culture and politics of foreign countries. The graduate school and international studies program together demonstrate Kurt Kent's lifelong commitment to extending the bounds of education in Journalism and Communications.
