Our Purpose

ICAD is an umbrella entity within JMU's School of Communication Studies that houses the Center for Conflict Analysis and Intervention, the Center for Health and Environmental Communication, and the Campus Community Civic Collaborative (4C). Our goal is to bridge the gap between the unversity community and the world outside the university through outreach, community service, research, and scholarship centered on productive communication processes and efforts.
