Communication and information are at the forefront of every industry and interaction today. The School of Communication and Information (SC&I) is committed to equipping students with the tools required to succeed in today’s global communication, information, and media environments. SC&I’s programs will prepare students interested in organizational and health communication, social and new media, library and information science, and information technology for a top career in today’s digital workplace.

The solutions to many of society’s critical problems are rooted in interaction, participation in information networks, and processes of civic engagement. Societal challenges include the achievement of healthy people and communities; maintaining a thriving democracy and useful public policy; preparing new generations of leaders; creating humane, productive, and empowering organizations; and development of individual skills, self-understanding, and personal fulfillment.
