Mission

The ways people communicate, to whom, and with what effects are crucial elements of vibrant public life. Our contemporary world is defined by rapid changes in uses of both new technologies and traditional communication media. The Center for Communication and Civic Engagement is dedicated to understanding these dynamic media systems in order to promote citizen engagement and effective participation in local, national, and global affairs. The Center has a broad range of research capabilities and learning programs that involve faculty and students at the University of Washington, as well as local community partners and scholars around the world.
