This article provides information on the Elliott School of Communication at Wichita State University. The Elliott School of Communication was established in 1989 merging the former departments of journalism and speech communication. The school is located in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and functions as both an academic department and a professional school. It is an integrated communication program that is built on the strengths of the traditions of mass communication and speech communication. While the Elliott School of Communication was established in 1989, discussion actually began five years before that when then-university president Warren Armstrong suggested in a State of the University address that the area of communication was one that should be targeted for review.
