CALS Comm 101 Workshops
Our departments, centers and programs have great stories. Working together, we can make sure the world hears them.

Once a month, the CALS Communications team hosts a workshop for all CALS departmental communicators and communications enthusiasts. These sessions focus on best practices, tips and tools to ensure we are on-brand and effective in telling our story. Learn more at our CALS Comm 101 Resource Page.
