Subscribing to the motto of “Learning to Communicate and Communicating to Learn,” CAC promotes the integration of communication skills (including writing, speaking, and listening) across campus, in both major and general education classes. It values communication as a way to facilitate developmental learning, active learning, integrated learning, and collaborative learning at Monmouth College. Students incrementally develop a variety of oral and written communication skills to engage course content actively, make strong arguments, and communicate effectively with academic and professional audiences.
We interpret communication as encompassing multiple forms of media, from a written text to an oral presentation to a video, image, or digital space. We value communication as meaningful for a wider public and an instrument of change in our community. We promote communication as a foundational element of a liberal arts education.
