The Department of Communication at Indiana State University has been long-time believer in the concept of "learning by doing not just listening." Learning by doing comes out of the national educational movement to transform learning from a passive activity to an active participatory activity. Many of the department courses involve students through various curricular offerings. Curricular offerings in these units are translated into practice through service-learning opportunities such as WISU-FM, Sycamore Video, the Educational News Service, the Indiana Statesman (ISU's campus newspaper), the Public Relations Student Society of America, the Society of Professional Journalists, the Otis J. Aggert Interpretation Lecture and performances of Sycamore Storytellers/Readers Theatre Ensemble. Additionally, the department supports an active student internship program, and many of its faculty regularly work with internal and external clients. These activities enrich the campus community and fulfill our institutional mandate to meet the needs of the citizens of Indiana.
