The Insight Committee of the GMU Department of Communication was formed to build and enhance relationships between the department, the students and the larger community of practicing public relations and communication professionals. The committee also strives to maintain an ongoing dialogue that helps focus the department’s research and teaching efforts as a means of meeting and furthering the needs of the professional communication community.
The Insight Committee meets several times a year and appoints sub-committees from time-to-time to lead the development of specific programs that support its key missions. The annual GMU Student/Industry Communications Forum is one of these outreach programs, with others focusing on career enhancement and communication job fairs.
Please save the date for the 2017 Annual Communication Forum.
It will be on October 24, 2017 from 8:45AM to 12:45PM in the HUB Ballroom (located on the Fairfax Mason campus).
