Communication Institute

Permanently established in 1997 by the Board of Trustees, the Communication Institute is a channel through which scholarship, teaching, and service may be made available to the campus community, the broader community of Salt Lake City, and beyond. The Institute supports the dissemination of research and pedagogy in rhetorical, cultural, organizational, interpersonal, health, environmental, scientific, and mediated communication practices.

The Conflict Resolution and Integrated Marketing Communication certificate programs, taught by leaders in the field, offer innovative research-informed instruction to campus and professional communities. The Institute also offers state of the art workshops, facilitations, and presentations on communication practices including public speaking, conflict resolution, marketing, and social media. Each year, the Institute offers a series of campus and public events around a theme. The theme for the 2016-2017 academic year is “Energy Democracy.” The theme for the 2017-2018 academic year is “Native American Experience in Utah.”
