I-Comm Week

Celebrating Information and Communication

As the college prepares for its annual I-Comm Week, the eighth edition, on Oct. 8-11, we hope you’ll mark your calendars and drop in to hear some of our sessions. The presentations cover all the disciplines of both our schools with an array of professionals, alumni, faculty and students participating. You’ll find a calendar of events here.

I-Comm Week — it’s “I” for information and “Comm” for communications — always seems to arrive quickly and surprise us, even though co-chairs Lisa Sisk and Dr. Kendra Albright have been working for months to assemble the program. But it also surprises us in other ways. Our students enjoy learning from the professionals. Our alumni and visitors love to see what we’re doing in the college. And our guest presenters always are pleased to share their time and expertise with us. Each year, we’re surprised — and delighted — by their growing enthusiam.

Check out the full schedule below. And please make a point to share in the I-Comm Week experience with us.
