The Center for Communication Engagement promotes communication-based problem-solving and research-based solutions for social innovation. The center provides opportunities for DePaul students and faculty to pursue teaching, research, and service across a variety of areas.
Labs in the Center for Communication Engagement investigate the impact of communication on society and offer opportunities for current students to do hands-on research with faculty.
At the ME Lab, faculty and student researchers offer market research services to the DePaul community, Chicago businesses and NGOs to determine how consumers interact with media.
