Communication Studies Professors Elizabeth and Matt Gill have been selected for the 2013 Eastern Illinois University Provost’s award for Integrative Learning. The award recognizes departmental efforts to advance integrative learning within an undergraduate degree program. Integrative learning encourages students to make connections among all aspects of their lives (academic, professional and personal) and apply learning gained in classes and other life experiences to new, complex situations. Dr. Gill and Dr. Gill were honored for developing the Communication Studies Social Marketing Internship program. The program gives Comm Studies majors an opportunity to create a public health campaign using social marketing tactics and provides important hands-on opportunities for the students.
