You were born to explore – to navigate an ever-expanding world of new ideas, new information, new people and new stories. The College of Communication & Information (CCI) is committed to offering innovative coursework, experiential learning, study away programs and internship and service-learning opportunities that expand your perspectives and your possibilities.
We are deeply committed to creating globally prepared citizens and professionals. That commitment is well reflected in our globally engaged faculty, administrators and staff.
“I always want to immerse myself in the vibrant beauty of cultures and traditions, to respect diversity and stand united. With every little opportunity, I have learned to embrace my life, as we are the citizens of the world.”
Visual Communication Design, Class of 2019
“To me, being global means to recognize that everyday there is a new place to go, a new story to tell, and new people to meet. Being global means that one action can have an effect on another community near or far away, whether we like it or not. People can be global without leaving their county. It is a mental understanding on your life. We may never go to a place like Indonesia where our T-shirts are made, but we certainly can watch a documentary about Indonesia. We may never venture to Antarctica, but we can read about how climate change is causing icebergs to melt. I believe being global is important because every day we live on this planet should be filled with asking questions, starting conversations, and learning about others. And if we are so lucky to have the chance to hop on a plane and explore a new region of the world, then we are truly blessed. It is our job to see new places and talk about them to those who do not get the chance to go. Being global is about discovery and enjoying the journey rather than the place.”
Communication Studies, Class of 2019
“I believe we are called to be stewards of the earth as individuals and as a community. Being aware and concerned for the well-being of our fellow man and the environment around us is, to me, what it means to be global.”

the whole world is my native land."
