Competency in communication is critical in order to be a literate and informed citizen. One of the key goals of a university education is to prepare students to excel academically, professionally, and personally. The Center for Excellence in Communication (CEC) provides students with the motivation, knowledge, and skills to effectively communicate in a variety of context. The CEC supports comprehensive, personalized, and group educational experiences for students across all majors and colleges to help them develop communication competence in their discipline. The CEC strives to help students achieve their educational, professional, and personal goals and develop an enhanced understanding of themselves as members of the community.
