Mission Statement

The School of Communication will serve the local region, the Commonwealth of Virginia and the nation by educating students through a liberal arts curriculum that prepares them for a range of careers in the field of Communication. We strive to develop ethical communication professionals who think critically and communicate effectively in a variety of contexts using the latest technologies. The School promotes excellence in teaching, learning, service, research and creative works within and across academic and industry disciplines at undergraduate and graduate levels. A cornerstone of preparing students to communicate ethically and responsibly is the concept of free expression and valuing diversity of cultures, beliefs and thought.   

Due to the Covid19 pandemic many faculty members are conducting on-line classes or are offering online advising sessions and office hours.  Please check your course syllabus for information on how to contact your professor.
