The purpose of the University of Minnesota Communicators Forum is to promote excellence in communications and enhance cooperation among communications professionals working at the University.
The Communicators Forum is a nonprofit, volunteer organization with many opportunities to get involved. Because learning and practicing new skills can be challenging, we support volunteers through leadership training and coaching. Members increase their professional skills and their knowledge of the University, providing value back to their units.
