Carl Hyden is Associate Dean for Administration in the School of Global Journalism & Communication. He came to MSU in 1995 after 16 years working first for Baltimore Mayor, then Maryland Governor, William Donald Schaefer writing speeches, planning events, tracking legislation and more. He taught courses ranging from political communication and propaganda to public relations. He's presented papers on the Anne Arundel County slots referenda, political advertising and Governor Schaefer's rhetorical style. More recent research involves ways in which places communicate what is important to society.

He's presented papers on local and national 9/11 memorials, the Chicago parks system, the High Line Park in NYC, the Westminster Arcade in Providence, RI and Maryland's memorials to Thurgood Marshall. These topics were chapters in Public Places: Sites of Political Communication, a book he co-authored. New research focuses on the site of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC as a place of public memory and on the Dallas Cowboys' new stadium in Arlington, TX. He is a member of the National Communication Association, the Eastern Communication Association and the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication. He has had active roles in governance of ECA. Outside Morgan, he serves as a member of the Board of Directors and as Secretary General of the United States of America Wushu-Kungfu Federation (USAWKF). He is also Deputy Secretary General and a Special Advisor to the President of the Pan America Wushu Federation (PAWF).
