Host Named for the NCA Center for Communication, Community Collaboration, and Change
The University of North Carolina at Greensboro’s Department of Communication has been selected to serve as the host of the new NCA Center for Communication, Community Collaboration, and Change (CCCC).
The CCCC is a two-year project aimed at facilitating partnerships with community-based organizations that create sustainable change for underrepresented and/or vulnerable communities through the production and application of communication-related scholarship and practice. The Greensboro community is confronted with issues of racism, racial inequality, voter suppression, a lack of affordable housing, and inaccessibility to food and health care. As a result, the CCCC will work with community partners to improve issues related to race, poverty, and sustainability.
Communication Professor Spoma Jovanovic, whose teaching and research focus on methods of meaningful participation in civic life to advance social justice, will serve as the CCCC Director.
