The University of Colorado Boulder is developing an entirely new college and program specifically for advertising and related majors. They're looking for feedback from professionals in the industry on their proposal for the new college. They'd like to generate enough feedback to present their new format to the board in a few weeks. Can you help out by lending your opinion here?
For many years, CU-Boulder has been one of the premier institutions in priming young minds for the world of digital, marketing and advertising communications. Yet, we all know this landscape changes by the second. So as the world changes, so will we.
CU-Boulder proposes to create a new College of Media, Communication and Information that would include a Department of Advertising, Public Relations and Media Design (APRD), along with several other campus programs centered on communication and technology. All of these ventures would reflect the demands of today and tomorrow.
Companies want and crave new talent with deeper skill sets ready to go. So we responded. Imagine your newest hire has studied with professional filmmakers. Imagine another hire has absorbed the latest in workplace technology, thanks to our new Department of Information Science. The possibilities are endless.
This proposal is scheduled to go to the Board of Regents soon, but first, CMCI’s planners would like your input.
