The Mission of Urban Communication; and Teaching Communication in a Business Orientation Program for Black Students.
Porte, Michael
A speech communication department in an urban college should perform functions geared to the special requirements of urban students and their communities. In addition, departments can provide special services in three areas: business and industrial consulting on communication problems, biomedical communication to disseminate information on matters of public health, and government communication to assist the training of upgrading of city and county employees. A second paper presents in some detail a special business communication course developed for potential management trainees, all of them black, selected by a major manufacturing firm. In addition to classroom work, the course features assignments at the company's offices. A few of the assignments are provided as examples of the course goals. (RN)
