Communication Studies Center

The Communication Studies Center has gone virtual!

While campus is closed, you can still get live, online help from our Instructional Aide, Jacqueline Swan, through Zoom during her office hours of Monday-Thursday, 8:00 am - 12:15 pm.

The Communication Studies Center will complement the classroom experience to engender excellence in oral communication in students. 


To fulfill this vision, the center:
  • Advocates for oral communication as an essential part of learning;
  • Cultivates an active-learning environment to develop student skills in speaking, listening, creative and critical thinking, and community-building;
  • Provides innovative technology and pedagogy, coupled with faculty and staff support, to enhance student learning;
  • Contributes through its initiatives to improve awareness and understanding of oral communication in the college community and beyond.
The Communication Studies Resource Center is a place where all may come to talk, think, and learn about oral communication.
