Paul Bolls, Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Studies, is enthusiastic about the accomplishments of faculty and graduate students at Murrow College. “I’m excited about all of the rigorous and relevant research going on in our College,” he said. “Congratulations to each of you presenting at ICA. Thank you to ALL of you who work to support our research mission, especially in this challenging virtual work environment.”

The theme for the ICA 2021 conference is “Engaging the Essential Work of Care: Communication, Connectedness, and Social Justice.” As described on the ICA website, the theme “calls for our examination of how care forms the fabric of our social and interconnected lives. From the moment that we enter this world, we are completely dependent on the care of others, and as we move through our lives, the care of our teachers, doctors, leaders, and artists shapes us into the adults that we are today.”

More information about specific conference sessions can be found in the searchable PDF ICA conference program.
