I am delighted that you have chosen to engage with our College of Communication & Information and I extend warm greetings to you. I welcome you to explore our three Schools — CommunicationCommunication Science & Disorders, and Information — each of which has a deep history of academic achievement, research, leadership, and community engagement by faculty, students, and alumni.

Our strong sense of inclusive excellence and our commitment to supporting each other in its pursuit help make the College a great place to work and to study. Evidence of this community can found in the activities presented in the student and alumni newsletters, and student organizations, both on-campus and online.

The College’s facilities include forward-looking research centers and institutes, state-of-the-art information technology to support a distributed academic community, Seminole Productionsthe Schendel Speech and Hearing ClinicWVFS – the FSU College Radio Station, CCI Digital Media Services, and partnerships with many community businesses and non-profit organizations that provide real-world work and service learning experiences.

FSU’s College of Communication & Information has become one of the international leaders in the iSchools movement by exploring the critical relationships between people, information, communication, and technology. Our programs emphasize professions and activities that enable our graduates to gain knowledge and skills they need to succeed throughout their careers. Through a combination of education, research, and service-learning, we harness the finest traditions of our people-focused, service-oriented disciplines into one organization dedicated to helping every person use information and communication to participate fully in society.
