Communication Across the Curriculum is a faculty-driven program committed to improving the communication competencies of all UNC Charlotte students. CxC pursues this mission by promoting communication in student learning, supporting departments, programs, and individual faculty as they integrate communication into and across their curricula, and enhancing student learning directly through peer mentors (Student Communication Consultants).


Students will thrive in their college, professional, and personal lives when they can accomplish communicative goals. This means creating messages appropriate to the audience, purpose, and context and selecting the appropriate modalities to achieve those goals.

  • Communication instruction is most successful when continuous and scaffolded throughout undergraduate education.
  • Communication promotes and facilitates learning.
  • Communication is a situated practice and context-specific.
  • Communication is essential to civic life and discourse.
