Update on Breaking the Barriers Conference

The conference planning group is on its way to finalizing many of the details and are beginning to fall into place.

On April 3, our class finally got to formally introduce ourselves to the rest of the University of Central Oklahoma Mass Communication faculty and staff, in which they went over the details of upcoming reception on September 28, 2017.

The meeting went well, as the faculty was very supportive of our proposals, here are some of them below:

  • Two panels with speakers from across the nation.
  • One keynote speaker, who will bring new ideas on one of our core themes.
  • Having refreshments and food as incentives for students, extra credit was also discussed.

The group also gave pointers on how we could better serve the student body and accommodate the faculty and staff.

The reception will be from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, September 28, 2017 on the third floor of the Old North building.

The panels and keynote are projected to begin at 1 p.m. in the Pegasus Theatre in the Liberal Arts Building.

We look forward to provide an excellent experience for you when our conference takes place. We will continue to update you on more info as they become available.

Remember to keep breaking barriers.
