The mission of the School of Journalism & Graphic Communication (SJGC) is to develop its students to assume meaningful positions in journalism, public relations, graphic communication, photography, printing, and other media-related areas. Emphasis on effective teaching, careful academic advisement, and productivity in research and significant creative activities are the principal mechanisms faculty use to prepare students to become skilled in their respective areas of study.
SJGC embraces enthusiastically the University’s commitment to diversity. Indeed, recognizing the importance of diversity is central to the mission of the SJGC. We endeavor to help shape our students into ethically and socially responsible leaders in a global society by helping students understand the importance of respecting the dignity of individuals and others from different ethnic backgrounds.
Moreover, it is the mission of SJGC to create synergy among its stakeholders—students, faculty, staff, alumni, and supporters—that will lead to greater success for the School and those it serves.
