Advisory Board

The Communication Studies program created an advisory board to assist in our many endeavors. The purpose of the advisory board is to provide suggestions, assistance, and advice to the CMST program in a variety of areas beneficial to the continuing quality, health, and professional and academic growth of the program. Membership on the board is by invitation of the CMST faculty. The board consists of the chair, faculty member, member of various fields, community members, and alumni of the program.
