About Brad Van Alstyne

Brad Van Alstyne will tell you that one of his favorite places to spend time is in the classroom. He fell into teaching quite by accident but has loved every moment of it since his first day in the fall of 1987. He graduated from CSU Chico in 1987 with a B.A. in Organizational and Interpersonal Communications, and finished his M.A in Human Communication Study in 1992. He is completing his Ph.D. at the California Institute For Integral Studies, focusing his coursework on human communication in online educational settings.

Brad has taught and worked in both the fields of communication and business and has over twenty years of experience at the community college, private college, and state university level as an instructor, dean, department director, faculty mentor, student advisor and curriculum author. Brad has also worked as a marketing director, public relations director, business communication consultant and personnel director.

Aside from teaching communication courses at Dominican, he continues to consult in business as well as authoring and creating curriculum for online programs throughout the Bay Area. Brad’s hobbies include spending time with his wife and two sons, or doing anything outdoors with family and friends.
