As part of the University of Florida’s efforts to build the emerging academic field of public interest communications, we helped organize a Public Interest Communications Summer Institute at Howard University in Washington, D.C. in June 2022. Attendees met in-person and online from around the country – and several other countries – to learn, share and collaborate in defining and building the field. Attendees made new friends, established ongoing collaborations and left with great memories of the trip to Washington, D.C. Please explore the links on this page to learn more.

We received such positive feedback about the summer institute that we’re doing it again in 2023! Sign up here to get updates about the 2023 Public Interest Communications Summer Institute.
