The Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute at Baruch College is a nationally recognized academic service unit and faculty development program dedicated to supporting undergraduates’ development as confident, purposeful and effective communicators. Through our support of Communication Intensive Courses (CICs) as well as our efforts in the City University of New York’s Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program, we work to ensure that Baruch students encounter many different forms of communication in many different disciplines over their course of study.
We develop, oversee and support a wide range of educational technology projects and are actively engaged with an international community of educators interested in the implication of technology and social media on teaching and learning. We sponsor a wide range of professional development activities for Baruch faculty and administration and engage in sustained dialogue on communication and communication intensive instruction with leading business professionals and educators from around the country.
