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.   

During the COVID 19 Pandemic the Main office and the Equipment Office will be closed. There will be no equipment checkout allowed until classes resume in the Fall. If you need assistance registering for classes please contact your advisor or the CHBS Advising office. If you have questions about your classes please contact the professor. Contact information will be on the class syllabus.  The School voice mail will be checked regularly but the best way to reach faculty is via e-mail.
