CAHS Information and Impact Center
The Information Impact Center (IIC) aims to streamline and enhance information dissemination within our organization and to better position the College of Agriculture and Human Sciences for the greatest impact.
The goal of the Information Impact Center is to increase positive awareness of our stakeholder audience with robust content and innovative application of current technology using data-driven decision-making tools. Build relationships to streamline and enhance information dissemination to promote community outreach and communicate the impact of the College of Agriculture and Human Sciences’ four department programs for the most significant impact.
The IIC creates all written, media, and promotional material for the CAHS, including brochures, booklets, videos, flyers, posters, press releases, media advisories, news articles, and much more. The center also provides photography and videography services. The department’s focus aligns with Dean Gerard D’Souza’s vision for the college, which is to return agriculture to the forefront of the university through powerful reporting, marketing, and branding of the college’s events, research, programming, academia, and community/extension work. The IIC operates best when partnered with our customers, employees, and internal and external stakeholders.
