University of Washington - Communication Leadership

Professional Development

The Communication Leadership graduate program has cultivated an invaluable network of community partners, industry contacts, and thought leaders. We strive to connect students and alumni to these valuable resources while they’re in the program, and after they’ve graduated.

Resources include:

– Monthly happy hours hosted by prospective employers
– An advisory network that advises our curriculum and serves as guest speakers in our classes
– Professional development opportunities at various events, including the Seattle Interactive Conference, in-nw, SXSW, Emerald City Comic Con.

In June, Comm Lead hosts a year-end celebration where students present their work to the community at large.

Ultimately, Comm Lead citizenship helps our students to “extend their reach” well beyond what they may have been able to accomplish on their own.
