Alumni: Please take
our online survey


In pursuit of national accreditation this fall, the School of Communications is gathering feedback from graduates about the quality of their education and what they now are doing. Please take a few moments to offer that feedback in a quick and easy survey at:

Elon's journalism and communications program has come a long way since graduating its first class of English/journalism majors in 1981 and since its days as a Department of Journalism and Communications during the 1990s. At Elon today, 20 percent of the student body is majoring in the School of Communications.

Accreditation is a national benchmark of program quality. The Accrediting Council has given this designation to only 105 communications programs worldwide. Sixteen private colleges and universities in the United States have an accredited communications school: Syracuse, Columbia, Hofstra, American, Howard, Hampton, Washington & Lee, Miami, Marquette, Northwestern, Baylor, Texas Christian, Abilene Christian, Drake, Brigham Young and the University of Southern California.

Elon and New York University are scheduled to go through the accreditation process in 2005-06. Elon's faculty is now in the self-study year - an intense time when the faculty assess the program from every angle.

The School of Communications wants and needs to hear from all 1,907 graduates of the program since 1981. Brittain Cheek, a 2001 Elon graduate in Corporate Communications, is the School's director of internships and alumni outreach. She will be coordinating a census of journalism and communications alumni for accreditation this year.

Thank you for helping us toward our accreditation goal by participating in the survey!
