During the summer of 2019, the Center for Collaborative Media worked with the City of Fort WayneRiverfront Fort Wayne and a group of students ahead of the grand opening of Promenade Park. Students learned what it was like to create marketing content for a client while under the supervision of the Center for Collaborative Media staff. Their work was highlighted during the grand opening celebrations of this major Riverfront Development milestone.

As a successful outlet for communication scholarship, the International Journal of Communication is an online journal funded in part by the Annenberg Foundation that has focused on written scholarship. In conjunction with the thirtieth anniversary of Critical Rhetoric, this issue blends the written word with audio/visual content designed for multiple platforms. It is the first of its kind for the journal and shows that both the ideas and the format of scholarship can push boundaries.


Working with Dr. Sandy Pensoneau-Conway and Dr. Debra Ford, the Center for Collaborative Media has already developed one video for the Inclusive Conference Spaces Project. The project is designed to promote diversity in the academy as well as create resources for those just starting out attending academic conferences.


During the Fall of 2019, Director of the Center for Collaborative Media, Dr. Art Herbig, became the volunteer Interim Executive Director of the Cinema Center during a time of transition for the organization.
