Gabriella Lopez

An email was sent out earlier today to all university students, faculty and staff announcing a new internal communications committee.

“What we say and how we say it is essential to our campus community, and, by now, you are aware that communication ranks very high in my priorities,” President Timur said in the email.

According to the email, the purpose of the committee is to strengthen how FGCU provides information. The committee is responsible for understanding the types of information channels and exploring how these channels can be effectively used to engage FGCU’s internal audience.

The committee is led by co-chairs Pamela McCabe, Coordinator of University Communications & Media Relations, and Lyn Millner, a journalism professor in the Department of Communication & Philosophy.
