Scholars from the School of Communication will attend this year’s virtual Central States Communication Association (CSCA) conference from March 23 to March 28.
The 2021 CSCA is an opportunity for communication professors, staff, alumni, and graduate students to present their scholarly work. While this year’s event will be hosted virtually instead of in-person, the School of Communication is looking forward to engaging discussion and insightful presentations.
