Communication and education are symbiotic elements that provide the foundation for higher learning, are central to the university’s mission, and transcend individual academic units. Established in 1992, the College of Communication and Education has a rich history of excellence and includes seven units: one school, five departments, and a program. Degree options include the bachelor of arts, the bachelor of science, the master of arts, and teaching credentials. While each unit varies in its particular academic foci, career preparation, and degree option, all are united by the interdependence of communication and education as the two critical processes that make the College of Communication and Education an exemplary learning community that nurtures, embraces, and values students’ potential. We value the knowledge and expertise of our faculty across the disciplines represented in the college while embracing opportunities for collaborative, interdisciplinary, and innovative teaching, research, and service.
CME aspires to be the college of choice for students to develop their full potential across contexts and the lifespan and a nationally recognized innovator in professional practice. The college prepares our students to be effective, educated, engaged, and ethical leaders in their relationships, communities, and professions. We do so by building a student-centered learning environment that focuses on the innovative pairing of disciplinary knowledge and applied professional practice to meet the needs of a diverse society.
