Andrew Wolvin

Andrew D. Wolvin (Ph.D., Purdue University, 1968) works in the communication areas of listening behavior and communication management. His current research interests extend dimensions of listening to the health literacy model and to a narrative model of listening to stories. A widely-published communication scholar, his recent work includes an edited book, Listening and Human Communication in the 21st Century (Blackwell), and a co-authored text, Communicating: A Social, Career, and Cultural Focus (12th edition, Allyn & Bacon). Professor Wolvin applies his work in listening behavior to the development of a model of “listenability,” preparing briefers in the national intelligence community.
