About Us

Why Communication

Why Communication

Communication knowledge and skills are essential in our globalized, mediated, and multicultural world. Our department recognizes that we live in "The Communication Millenium" where our ability to create, collaborate, interpret, and understand diverse messages makes a profound difference to our local, national, and international communities. From interpersonal communication through the Internet, we encourage our students to enact effective and ethical communication across everyday life, organizational settings, and public and international affairs.



The mission of the Department of Communication is threefold. First, the Department aims to create a learning environment in which students develop the skills, knowledge, and abilities necessary to use communication to create a more civil and humane world. Second, the Department strives to create scholarship of the highest intellectual merit and to contribute scholarly and creative works that further the study, teaching, and practice of communication. Third, the Department aspires to provide excellent service to our college, university, profession, and community.
