Administrative history

In 1989, the Division of Communication Services, which since 1961 had been a centralized audiovisual department for schools and departments under the Provost's office, and later under the College of Arts and Sciences, became a unit of the School of Communication. In its heyday, it had produced countless educational television programs in Natural Sciences, Humanities, and Social Sciences for large classes taught in the Whitten Learning Center. The title of Communication Services changed to CAMM (Center for the Advancement of Modern Media) in 1995.
