  COMS 323 Students Partner with Non-Profit Organizations

Professor Jessica Baty McMillan – Principles of Sustainability – COMS 323 (Group Communication)

Last spring, the students in Professor McMillan’s COMS 323 class partnered with Heal the Bay and Food Forward, two non-profit organizations committed to addressing environmental concerns. The students worked in groups to create video projects that emphasized issues ranging from ocean pollution to food justice.  In creating these projects, students focused on community empowerment, youth education, and advocacy. Senator Robert M. Hertzberg recognized these students for their sustainability work in the San Fernando Valley and sent a representative to present them with service awards.

Check out some of the projects:
