Carol Reuss (1932 – 2018)

UNC School of Media and Journalism Professor Emeritus Carol Reuss died Monday, Dec. 31, 2018.

Reuss was a pioneer as one of the first women on the faculty when she joined the school in 1976. She taught the first public relations courses in the school and helped build the school’s PR specialization.

After teaching, Reuss served as an associate provost at UNC from 1987-94. She was inducted into the NC Media and Journalism Hall of Fame in 1996.

In retirement, Reuss remained an active voice in the school community and an advocate for women’s leadership.

In Fall 2012, Associate Professor Barbara Friedman and then-student Marissa Rupp ’13 produced an oral history in 2012 that traces Reuss’ career.

Memorials in Reuss’ name may be made to the Carol Reuss Fund at the School of Media and Journalism Foundation. Donations may be sent to Wendy Borman, Associate Dean for Development and Alumni Affairs, at P.O. Box 309, Chapel Hill, N.C. 27514-0309 — or make an online gift at and enter “Carol Reuss Fund” in the search box.

The school will host a memorial service for Reuss from 2-4 p.m. on, Sunday, Feb. 17, in Carroll Hall’s Freedom Forum. Speakers will include Dean Susan King, Dean Emeritus Richard Cole, Professor Emeritus and former interim dean Tom Bowers and former student Rhonda Beatty ’87.
