Sue DiBella has worked as a professional communicator in Southern Nevada for more than 20 years. Early in her career, she was a journalist for the now-defunct Valley Times newspaper and went on to serve as a graduate assistant and part-time instructor in UNLV’s communication studies department. In 1985, she joined the UNLV News & Public Information Office, where she served in a number of roles, including assistant director and founding editor of UNLV Magazine. DiBella holds two degrees in communication studies — a master’s degree in 1988 and a bachelor’s degree in 1981, both from UNLV. In her current role, she guides the direction and preparation of a variety of communication materials supporting the Division of Research and Graduate Studies, including UNLV Innovation, the university’s research magazine.
