You’re invited to join us on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 in the Centre for Dialogue at 12:30 p.m. or via livestream, for the sixth panel in the Communication Matters series.  Listen to what BA Professional Communication students have to say on the future of journalism. Panelists will discuss this topic by responding to a series of questions from moderator and associate faculty member Dr. Jeffrey Orr.
