As the first program of its kind in the nation, Communication across the Curriculum
works with LSU faculty to advance the communication skills of all LSU undergraduate
students. Through enhanced learning experiences inside and outside the classroom,
CxC initiatives help students improve their written, spoken, visual, and technological
communication skills and deepen their learning of course content.
CxC offers faculty development workshops and curricula design resources to faculty
who incorporate communication-intensive components to their courses; operates communication
studios that support students working on communication-based projects; honors students
who excel in communication via the LSU Distinguished Communicator certification program;
and champions the annual TEDxLSU program which provides a year-round experiential
learning platform for students while also promoting communication of creative and
intellectual ideas throughout the South Louisiana region.
