Communication Department Leadership Advisory Board


The role of the FSU Communication Department Leadership Advisory Board (LAB) is to advise the leadership of the department on innovative strategies that respond to the needs of the student body, including curriculum innovation, equipment and funding resources, and community engagement. Board members assist the Department in building closer ties with local media and business organizations, particularly those that provide opportunities for students. The Board convenes quarterly (or four times each calendar year) and during these meetings, the committee will receive a presentation by the Department Chair or an appropriate representative regarding departmental accomplishments, issues, and future plans.
