Involvement in student organizations is a great way to explore career options, develop your network and make an impact on the college, the campus and the community throughout your college experience.
The Communication and Leadership Club focuses on empowering students to lead ethically in their communities. Members are organized into four teams: Service, Social, Leadership and Mentorship, and pursue projects and objectives to achieve their mission.
In the Community
Internships are critical to helping students decide how they will apply their talents and interests in the real world.
One internship course is required to complete the degree coursework, but students often have multiple internships to provide exposure and experience in a variety of fields. Many students focus their internships toward social entrepreneurship, not-for-profit organizations, public policy, issue advocacy or organizational communication.
