Bio

Impellizzeri is originally from Long Island, NY but grew up in sunny South Florida. Prior to joining the Regent community, he made his home in the greater Pittsburgh area for over fifteen years. In between his time in Florida and Pennsylvania, he lived in four other states. He and his wife now reside in Virginia Beach and joyfully anticipate the arrival of their first child. Together they were members of a Presbyterian church in the university center of Pittsburgh. They relish being outside (jogging, kayaking, biking) and take great delight in food from a variety of ethnic backgrounds.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY


Mr. Impellizzeri is an instructor of Communication Studies. His scholarly interests focus on rhetorical and philosophical understandings of human communication; communication ethics in the public sphere and the marketplace; and media ecology. Since 2009 he has taught courses in communication, philosophy, and the humanities at four other universities and colleges. He anticipates defending his Ph.D. dissertation in rhetoric from Duquesne University in the fall of 2019. He holds a master’s in philosophy and a master’s in leadership and liberal studies, both from Duquesne. He received a bachelor’s degree in Christian ministry from Lee University. Prior to his academic profession, he served in vocational church ministry for two years and in the field of college student development for over eleven years at three different institutions.


Impellizzeri aims to assist his students in discerning prominent, but often unacknowledged, cultural visions of the self and of human togetherness. He contends, “Who we understand the human person to be and what we assume good communities at home, at work, and in society to entail is at the very heart of the study of human communication. I strive for a conversational classroom so that together we might better perceive our cultural and historical situation and then draw upon more lifegiving intellectual and moral resources.” He believes the study of rhetoric and communication is fruitful for fostering good households, workplaces, and civic communities. Through communication studies Christian students have the opportunity to grow in the practical wisdom needed to love their neighbor well and to signpost this world with indicators of a different order of things.
