Dear CMST Community:
Many of you know that the university has extended spring break until Wednesday, March 24, 2020. When classes resume, they will be hosted online for the remainder of the semester. If you are in a Communication Studies student, you should have heard from your instructor about these changes. If not, reach out to them by email to learn more.
We know that this is a big change for all of us. As communication scholars and practitioners, we understand that our mediums of interacting matter. To move from face to face interaction to mostly digital engagement will change how we talk, how we feel, and how we act.
As communication scholars and practitioners, we are also aware in the ways few others are how deeply interconnected all of us are. This is the great power of being human. And this interconnectedness comes at great risk as well. The coming weeks will be a chance for us to reflect on and to make and remake our ways of interacting. Let’s draw on our ancient and recent wisdom to treat each other well.
Don’t hesitate to be in touch.
Department Chair
