About the KCBC Get to know our mission and staff

Staff and student working in the KCBC Office.

The Center for Business Communication's mission is to provide students and faculty with opportunities to become better writers, speakers, thinkers, and readers.

We believe that writers and speakers at all levels of ability benefit from sharing their written text and verbal presentations with people who will provide honest, yet supportive feedback.

Our staff serves as both readers and audience members, and will ask questions and suggest revisions to improve clarity.
