Alumni Update

A request of our alumni
We conduct an alumni survey every third year as part of our national accreditation process. It helps us keep in touch with what you are doing and, more broadly, changes in the communications world. It also asks you to ascertain the values and competencies that you use in whatever endeavor you are engaged. The survey can be found here. We’d appreciate a moment of your time to respond. Thanks so much!
