Juliet Stantz

Juliet Stantz has taught at DePaul since 2008. She considers herself a communication generalist, with interests in public relations/advertising, media and society, gender studies, organizational communication and research methodology. Currently, she enjoys teaching Advertising and Society (PRAD 335), PRAD Ethics (334), Research, Data and Insights (291), and the PRAD Capstone (396). Since 2020 she has been the faculty adviser for DePaul’s award-winning chapter of PRSSA (Public Relations Student Society of America). 

After working in Journalism and public relations in the Chicago area for 10 years, Juliet found her passion in academia. Teaching research methods continually reaffirms her love of inquiry as students choose stimulating issues to investigate and the world never ceases to put forth studies and claims that are ripe for critical analysis. Whatever the course, she strives to keep her classes interactive and centered on hands-on practice. Her greatest satisfaction comes from seeing students become empowered by the insights and skills they gain and apply to their lives. Juliet sees DePaul as the perfect arena for pursuing a life of wisdom, compassion, and service, with every quarter providing a new opportunity to learn and grow with her students. There is no other community of learners of which she would rather be a part. 

Juliet has her master's in communication studies from Northwestern University, where she also completed the coursework for a doctorate. Her bachelor's is in journalism from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she also did master’s coursework in Sociology. She lives in Northwoods in unincorporated DuPage County, where she attempts to surround herself with as many colorful plants and interesting rocks as possible.
