Biography

Mark P. Orbe (Ph.D., Ohio University, 1993) is an internationally known educator, author, and consultant/trainer. His teaching and research interests center on the inextricable relationship between culture and communication as played out in a number of contexts (intrapersonal, interpersonal, intergroup, mass media).  In addition to publishing over a dozen books, he has also presented over 100 papers at regional, national, and international academic conferences, and published over 100 articles in scholarly journals and chapters in edited books.

In addition to his award-winning teaching, research, and service accomplishments, Dr. Orbe has actively sought out opportunities – across the U.S. and abroad – to utilize his expertise beyond the walls of the university. Through his consulting company, Dumela Communications, he has worked with a number of corporate, educational, health-care and community-based organizations in terms of promoting communication competence in an increasingly diverse society.
