Jim Crandall began his life in the Communication Media field as a student at Aims. After receiving his associate of arts degree in 1988, he attended the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point where he earned a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in Communication – double majoring in broadcast and organizational communication for both degrees.
While at UWSP, Jim taught speech and television production courses, and he also worked in the university’s video production unit. He also did freelance work with Wausau Insurance, one of the top video production facilities in central Wisconsin. Along with video production work, Crandall worked with the education department at UWSP in developing UWSP’s distance education program, writing two manuals for instructors and technicians.
Crandall joined the staff and part-time faculty of Aims Community College in 1994 and became a full-time member of the faculty in 1998. He enjoys teaching the many students in the Communication Media program, as well as being chair of the department. He is also on the Board of Directors for the Broadcast Education Association.
