Jacob Jenkins


openCI Coordinator

2016 Faculty Fellow

I am an Assistant Professor of Communication at California State University Channel Islands (CI). My research interests include organizational leadership, community building/engagement, and positive organizational change.

As a TL&I Faculty Fellow, I am working alongside three undergraduate students at CI to (1) explore college students’ understandings of community within virtual contexts, and to (2) develop best practices for creating/maintaining community within online and blended classrooms through the use of educational technology.
