Inside CCI – The newsletter for College of Communication and Information faculty, staff, and students.
Available online at



CCI graduate students, both master’s and doctoral, from the College of Communication and Information have formed the college’s first Graduate Student Association. The goal of the group is to provide a supportive academic and social community for CCI graduate students, as well as to provide a channel of communication between graduate students and college administration.  After exploring how other graduate communication program student associations are structured and gaining advice from CCI faculty, a set of by-laws was drafted and officer elections were held. The first event will be a Lunch and Learn on “Bibliographic Software & File Management” Thursday, September 22, at noon in room 420 of the Communications Building. The presenter is Todd Suomela, an Information Sciences Ph.D. candidate. Bring your own lunch. (Water is provided).  RSVP to Lorna Keathley at
