The Roy H Park School of Communications will offer a series of virtual forums to make new connections, spark insights and build momentum in our shared interest in communications. We'll gather online in an open, accessible format that engages our community and allies in driving the discussion around our mutual industries and professions. [September 15 - December 18].

ALL SESSIONS:  Student Leadership Institute (SLI, Office of Student Engagement) and Career Connections (CC, School of Business) credit eligible. 


  • IC Engage RSVP/Registration 
  • Registration
  • All sessions are conducted via ZOOM Video Conference (Park Professional Development to host and/or partner(s), i.e., IC Philanthropy & Engagement, Career Services, Office of Student Engagement, School of Business)

The Park Conversation series will provide an opportunity for students to interact with an industry professional in an informal setting that provides for brief remarks focusing on the “career pathway” of the speaker in reflection and advice pushing forward for the next generations of employees. The conversation will offer an opportunity for students to introduce themselves to the speaker and to ask questions. Each session will also allow for one to one breakout sessions at the conclusion of the general forum.
