Letter from the Dean: Summer 2021

As we in CMCI prepare for another fall semester, I want to share some updates about our campus, as well as a few stories about our alumni, students and faculty.

5 Years of CMCI

Celebrating the Past and Present

CMCI was founded in 2015 at a moment of revolutionary change in the ways we communicate and see ourselves as a society. 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.

Summer 2020: Letter from Dean Bergen

Here’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot this summer––and I’ve spoken to CMCI professors who are thinking about this, too. While the situation we’re in presents challenges, this is also an incredible time to be doing the work that we do.

Think. Innovate. Create.

As we enter our fifth year as a college, we’ve created new departments and centers, hired faculty from across the country and developed new academic programs. These changes have set up an environment for our students, alumni, faculty and staff to be confident and creative in an evolving world, and we’re continuing to move forward.


Field(s) of Vision

You may notice—as we did while this issue was taking shape—how many of the stories center on images and representations. As you enjoy this copy of CMCI Now, I wonder if these stories might change your image of us.

Looking back and moving forward

When I met alumnus Carl Cannon (Jour’75) for lunch in Washington, D.C., last fall, he was still nostalgic for the J-school. I shared my vision for the college and we talked about current faculty research and student projects.

On top of the news

Our professors, students and alumni end up not only following the news, but also featured in stories about their research and work.

From a strong foundation, we embrace what’s next

This marks the first issue of our magazine CMCI Now, and I’m excited to share news from our students, faculty and centers. CMCI Now will be delivered four times a year electronically, with a fall print edition delivered by mail as well.
