Student Organizations

Pratt Communications Committee 

The Communications Committee is composed of a group of five second-year students from the Graduate Communications Design program. The committee acts as a liason between students and the Graduate Communications Design administration. The CC facilitates communication within the program and provides opportunities to foster community, creativity, professional development, and growth. The CC also coordinates a fall semester orientation event for incoming new students where they provide advice, tips, and information about upcoming Pratt events. The committee has a continual presence throughout the year by bringing speakers to campus, organizing workshops, and planning various events including the spring semester event, Free School.
