Edward R. Murrow College of Communication

Life-changing research

As part of its efforts to provide the ethical and socially responsible communication leadership that underpins a democratic society and a global community, the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University conducts some of the nation’s leading communication research.

Murrow faculty members are active participants in multiple interdisciplinary research efforts at WSU, including Prevention Science, the Center for Environmental Research, Education and Outreach (CEREO), and the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Research Program (ADARP). The efforts support health- and science-related Grand Challenges and also contribute to student education and retention as part of the WSU Drive to 25.
