Welcome to the CJC IDEA website. Our faculty and staff are working to ensure that our college becomes a preeminent institution on matters of inclusion, diversity, equity and access at all levels of activities.
On this site you’ll find information about CJC diversity initiatives, including the work of the CJC Inclusion, Diversity and Equity (IDE) Committee — a shared governance group co-chaired by both faculty and staff that advocates toward an inclusive and equitable environment in the service of living up to the goals stated above.

The College of Journalism and Communications understands the importance of diversity as a contribution to the industries of journalism and communications in our increasingly multicultural nation and globalized marketplace.
We value diversity and the development of competence in intercultural communication and behavior for all who are a part of our college, industry and society.
Thus, we are committed to incorporating diversity and inclusiveness in our faculty, staff, student, curriculum, research, immersion properties and culture. We embrace diversity as a shared responsibility among faculty, staff and students and strive for tangible expressions of this responsibility.
We are committed to fostering a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment for individuals of all races, genders, nationalities, religions, sexual orientations, identities and abilities, to express their culture and perspectives through the art and science of journalism and communications.
