Applied Communication Training: A Model for Integrating University Teaching with Communication Consulting and Research.
Comeaux, Patricia
As a partial result of the burgeoning interest and activity on the part of professors and students in communication consulting, a model was developed to provide a solution for many of the problems associated with university consulting. The model proposes that universities develop and operate their own Centers for Applied Communication. Through such centers the roles of the communication professor as educator, researcher, and consultant are integrated. The centers also could serve as an apprenticeship for students and junior faculty. Furthermore, the centers could provide outreach programs for the community and bridge the gap between the academic and the business communities. Rather than viewing consulting as an extracurricular or separate activity from teaching and research, faculty and students are better served through the center because consulting would be perceived as part of the educational process.
