The changing face of a communications department

David Domke, chair of the UW Department of Communication, outlined his goals for the department’s next few years at a recent staff meeting. The author and former journalist reflected on these goals in a forward-looking blog post that speaks to what a communications department of the 21st-century should look like.

Domke says the department will look to be entrepreneurial, seeking funds, developing ideas and creating new products and approaches. It will engage with the public via lectures, workshops, organizational boards and partnered events. It will act as a source for news media and will seek opportunities to provide knowledge to students and foster a navigational mindset for how to succeed in a 24/7 communication world.

In short, it’ll get busy, get involved and get noticed. Read Domke’s post here, and enjoy these tasty Dawg Treats:
