On March 29-30, 2019, the School of Communication at Radford University hosted the annual Virginia Association of Communication Arts and Sciences (VACAS) conference in the College of Humanities and Behavioral Sciences (CHBS).

A main goal of the conference is to increase undergraduate student’s participation in research opportunities, a goal that aligns with Radford University's critical mission and strategic plan.

“We believe that students have the opportunity to engage in meaningful research and this is one of those opportunities where our students will benefit greatly when you think about the purpose of this organization and the exposure that students have being able to engage directly in research with faculty,” said Radford University President Brian O. Hemphill. Ph.D. “You have some of our best and brightest engaging with you today.”
