Our graduates are lifelong learners who are active participants in local and global communities. They embody the values of leadership, enterprise, intellectual curiosity, social responsibility and environmental sustainability.
Our faculty use innovative and effective practices of teaching and learning that help nurture the full range of learners’ intellectual, social and emotional competencies, including leadership, critical and creative thinking, and communication and collaboration skills. Faculty members generate new knowledge and creative work that adds value to society. As scholars, researchers, practitioners and creative professionals, our faculty are themselves lifelong learners, active and community-connected, whose work is regionally and nationally recognized and respected.
The Harrington School of Communication and Media aims to be a distinctive and nationally recognized program whose graduates are well-prepared for citizenship, careers and life in a rapidly changing global economy.
As a learning community, we use the power of information and communication to make a difference in the world.
HOW WILL WE MOVE FORWARD?
1. ACCELERATE CURRICULUM REFORM through the development of interdisciplinary clusters in digital media competency, communicating science, and collaboration, leadership and advocacy that enable research and teaching collaboration between faculty, students and members of the local and global community.
2. GET STREET SMART by providing real-world experience both in and out of the classroom that develop leadership, creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration skills, contributing to student success in the workplace and community.
3. A FIRST-CHOICE DESTINATION. Enable students to take classes in several unique locations, selecting degree programs that take advantage of our land, sea and urban grant traditions. Flexible online courses use the power of digital media to build knowledge and competencies.
