A revolution in political communication has unleashed new ways to foster citizen engagement through social networking technologies and other non-traditional media. The result is a new style of politics that has spread around the globe.
The Center for Political Communication (CPC) consolidates faculty expertise in emerging communication technologies to explore their effects on elections and policy debates, establishes graduate and undergraduate research opportunities and encourages public engagement. The Center promotes research in politics, policy and new techniques in political communication, both in the United States and internationally. It supports events designed to engage students, scholars, media and the public. CPC Initiatives include:
- Practitioner fellowships
- Research and scholarship
- Speaker series: Global Agenda and National Agenda
- Visual messaging in politics
- Digital Messaging Exposition
- International political communication
