The Dr. Elfreda Chatman Professorship

The legacy of Dr. Elfreda Chatman runs deep in the College of Communication and Information at FSU. Coming to work at the college as a faculty member in 1998, Dr. Chatman impacted the lives of many of her students, mentees, and coworkers. Before coming to FSU, Dr. Chatman's research resulted in many middle-range theories: Information Poverty,  Life in the Round, and Normative Behavior. The impacts of Dr. Elfreda's work are still felt today, twenty years after her untimely death.

As an African-American female researcher and professor herself, the Dr. Elfreda Chatman Professorship is aimed to provide opportunities to continue the growth and expansion of the study of information behavior and provide opportunities for FSU to continue the tradition of being a supportive space for people of color as they move through doctoral programs.

Join us in celebrating 75 years of excellence at the iSchool and 25 years of online learning by honoring Dr. Elfreda's legacy in the history of the College of Communication and Information.
