Public Interest Communications Summer Institute Registration

2023 Summer Institute

WHAT: Come be a part of a growing network of academics and practitioners who will gather in Houston, Texas, June 14-16, 2023, to learn, share and collaborate in building the emerging academic field of public interest communications. At this second Public Interest Communications Summer Institute, we will share classroom resources, help you build syllabi that connect public interest communications to communities, and bring researchers and practitioners together to learn from each other. We’re arranging an off-campus environmental justice-related event as well. Whether you’re just curious about public interest communications or have taught or done research in the area, this institute is for you!
