Presented by: Anthony Cuomo


I am so honored to present the 2020 Model Communication Program Award, which may be given annually to one community college communication program and one Elementary/Secondary school based on the following criteria:

1. The program should reflect the breadth and/or depth of the communication discipline.

2. The program should have teaching personnel with specialized training in communication.

3. The program should integrate curricular and co-curricular activities.

4. The program should have strong administrative support.

5. The program should relate to the mission of the particular institution.

This year, we are recognizing an outstanding community college program. And, community colleges are an important part of our organization. Introducing students to our discipline, supporting them as they transfer to four-year institutions and include faculty who are dedicated to teaching and learning.


This year’s recipient is an outstanding example of a communication program. All of their courses use free Open Educational Resource textbooks, promote interdisciplinary education, are leaders in professional development on their campus, support adjunct faculty, are inclusive to their diverse student body including their LGBTQ students, have an award winning forensics program, offer student scholarships, and employ innovative teaching practices in the classroom.


This year’s model communication program award recipient is Mount San Antonio College.
