In this presentation, we will discuss the foundation of the collaboration, the initial steps, initiatives, and activities, and the future plans of COMM-IT. Initiatives and activities include the creation of the Digital Engagement Certificate, cross promotion of certificates and minors at the IT-Expo, a team taught UCForward course, addition of an IT introductory course into the Applied Communication Certificate and learning communities for Communication majors. With an interdisciplinary focus, faculty and staff worked together to create a summer joint recruitment effort of future Bearcats. Faculty have collaborated with each other in grant applications (both internal and external), research presentations, teaching workshops, and promotion of conferences, events, and workshops including WordCamp and IT-Expo. Future plans for COMM-IT include the development of a joint graduate certificate, providing networking opportunities for students across disciplines, and sharing expertise and skills with each other through teaching, research, and service.
