Loyola University Center for Environmental Communication

The Loyola University Center for Environmental Communication (LUCEC) is one of the few such centers in the United States that specializes in training communicators in covering environmental issues.  All of our efforts are focused on spreading the word about the environmental issues facing Louisiana and beyond.


What is environmental communication?

"Environmental communications is communication about environmental affairs. It includes evaluation of how media cover environmental issues, the rhetoric of environmental debates and decision making, and the discourse around how to solve environmental problems. Environmental communication is all of the many forms of communication (interpersonal, group, public, organizational, mass, etc.) that intersect with the social debate about environmental issues and problems."
