COMM Week 2020 will be moved to a virtual setting, which is an unprecedented move for the long running event. The task force, comprised of students from the COMM 497T class, made the decision to move the event online due to several factors, including the state of California's stay-at-home mandate and Cal State Fullerton's campus moving classes online in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
"Due to the situations surrounding COVID-19, and Governor Gavin Newsom's stay at home order, COMM Week 2020 has made the decision to virtually host the event," the COMM Week Task Force posted on their Instagram account. "The safety of our team, speakers, professors and viewers is our highest priority."
COMM Week, which is abbreviated for "communications week," is a week long event that traditionally invites communications industry professionals to the campus of Cal State Fullerton so that they can share their knowledge, experience and wisdom with students and the public. Now COMM Week will be exclusively online. Speakers will be submitting videos in which they can still share their expertise. These videos will be posted on YouTube and shared.
A full list of speakers and more details will be announced as they become available.
