Advisory Board

The Elliott School of Communication has an active advisory board of communication professionals, including leaders of many of the most prominent media outlets, marketing firms and largest communication employers in Kansas.

In addition to advising on curriculum, research, policy and program issues, members of the board serve as resources for classes, advise graduating seniors on portfolios and conduct practice job interviews. A number are also financial supporters of the school.

Many of the organizations represented on the board employ ESC students in co-op jobs, internships and full time positions after graduation.
