A Message to COMM Students During the COVID-19 Crisis

Dear Students,

The well-being of our community—students, staff, faculty, and our respective loved ones—is the Department of Communication’s most important priority. That commitment holds even as we respond to the urgency of reducing the spread of the coronavirus while, as possible, fulfilling the university’s teaching, research, and service mission.

This has been a stressful semester for all of us. We very much appreciate the COMM community coming together during this time to support each other. Please let us know if there’s anything we can do to make this transition easier for you. We miss all our students and look forward to seeing you back on campus in the future.

Finally, to all the graduating seniors: we recognize that this is a very challenging way to end your career at Carolina. We are extremely proud of our 2020 graduates, and we hope we’ll be able to celebrate with you this fall. We wish you the greatest success during this extraordinary period and into the future.


Dr. Patricia Parker, Chair

The Faculty and Staff of the Department of Communication
