ITS Day 2018

Join us for this annual event on Thursday, April 12!  Steve Crocker will deliver the keynote talk at 3:00 PM (location TBD):  Stephen D. Crocker is the inventor of the Request for Comments series, authoring the very first RFC and many more. He received his bachelor’s degree and PhD from the University of California, Los Angeles.

As always there will be a lunch and an evening Student Awards Banquet at the OU Inn.  Additional information on the Day will be posted soon.  Questions?  Contact the faculty chair for the ITS Day committee, Trevor Roycroft.  To register your attendance, contact Barb Moran.

ITS Day is part of Communication Week, sponsored by the Scripps College of Communication. The roots of Communication Week in the Scripps College of Communication date back to 1968, when the School of Journalism held its first Journalism Week in early May and awarded the first Carr Van Anda Awards “for enduring contributions to journalism” to Turner Catledge, Edward W. Barrett and Walter Cronkite.

In 1970, Journalism Week was changed to Communication Week to incorporate the entire college. The annual event included events, speakers and panel discussions designed to encourage student interaction with prominent leaders in the communication field and draw alumni to campus.

Over the years, the Scripps College has hosted such notable professionals as Rev. Jesse Jackson (1998), Peter Arnett (1992), Ted Turner and Hugh Downs (1982). After 37 years of annual Communication Week activities, in 2006, events were no longer held during a concentrated five-day period, but spread throughout Ohio University’s ten-week spring quarter. In 2013, Communication Week was reinstated to celebrate the college and its alumni.
