Centers & Institutes

  • Center for Community Media

    The Center for Community Media at Worcester State University helps the campus and greater Worcester community create informational and educational programming on current events and issues relevant to residents of Worcester. Our collaborations help document and publicize community activities. We also regularly organize and facilitate workshops and tutorials on media production.

    We encourage students and other community members to join our work. As a participant, you will gain practical experience creating media messages. In the process, you will learn the social and democratic processes of community building while developing a strong grasp of—and deep appreciation for—intercultural learning and communication.

    The center is open for business during the fall and spring semesters.

  • Current and Past Projects
    • We are developing a student-run community news/talk show to develop strong connections between WSU and the City of Worcester.
    • We are recording a regular podcast that focuses on events both on campus and beyond.
    • We have worked with WSU’s Multicultural Affairs Office to produce high-definition video profiles of WSU’s Alternative Individual Development and Upward Bound programs.
    • Through a partnership with Worcester Art Museum, we have produced video segments highlighting the museum’s mission and showcasing some of its exhibits in order to help heighten public awareness of its exhibits, events, and educational imperatives.
    • With our guidance, a representative of the Shrewsbury Historical Commission utilized our post-production facilities to edit a short documentary chronicling the restoration of a historical building.
    • We partnered with a recent WSU graduate to facilitate the production of 2 public service announcements designed to heighten public awareness of disabled youth and inform people of summer camp options for this particular demographic.
