The Center presents the Frank Stanton Award for Excellence in Communication annually to "individuals who exemplify achievement and excellence in any genre of mass communication." 


The Vision of a Visionary

When Dr. Frank Stanton founded the Center for Communication in 1980,
the mission was to bridge the gap between the media industry and academia. 


First Things First.

Dr. Stanton, a staunch proponent of the highest standards in journalism and a fierce defender of the First Amendment, was keenly aware that a media revolution was on the horizon. He envisioned a forum where pressing industry issues could be explored and even solved. That will always remain our mission and goal.
