CMCI was founded in 2015 at a moment of revolutionary change in the ways we communicate and see ourselves as a society.
In our first five years as a college, we established new academic programs that allow students to apply their skills in a broader range of industries, including data science, documentary filmmaking and sports.
Our faculty are dedicated to research that matters on climate change, public health, representation and identity, dis- and misinformation, visual ethnography, and data ethics.
And we’ve expanded precollegiate opportunities that set students up for success and help create a more vibrant, equitable and inclusive college community.
What’s next? New initiatives include developing an online master’s in corporate communication, establishing a media innovation laboratory and exploring virtual frontiers through extended reality.
As we celebrate the new college, we realize that our successes would not be possible without the strong foundation established by our legacy programs in the Department of Communication and the former School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and the thousands of alumni who graduated from these programs and remain supporters of CMCI today.
Our alumni and students are creators, problem-solvers and storytellers. They’re researchers and entrepreneurs. And every day they use words, images and data to tell stories that matter.
To mark the milestone of five years—cover to cover—this issue of CMCI Now features the designs, images and stories of over 25 students and recent alumni.
You can view more of their work in our Student Work Gallery, which represents a selected collection from the last several years of ad campaigns, data visualizations, photojournalism and graphic design.
As always, I’d love to hear from you.
Be safe and well,
College of Media, Communication and Information
