Our 3rd year Communication Design students created public service messages to tell the story of the region's current state of broadband connectivity. The students' campaigns are critical in helping raise awareness, advocate for and educate the general population about the importance of high-speed connectivity and its role in our day-to-day lives. Thank you to our partners Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission, in collaboration with Allies for Children and Carnegie Mellon University (Metro21 and Traffic21)
