Graduate of Portland State University, BA in Political Science
Eric attributed many of his professional successes to what he gained from Public Speaking, Argument Critical Discourse, and Interpersonal Communication.
“The ability to engage in civil discourse has been central to my success. Whether I was arguing in student government, pushing a policy with the president of my university, or lobbying on a bill, the skills that I gained from my Communication courses have been the most useful in my work.
“These classes helped me articulate my ideas and values. They also provided strategies for working constructively with a diverse group of people. I've turned the communication skills that I developed at LBCC into many positive, tangible impacts. Communication courses are not just about learning how to give a great speech or work out a disagreement; they can also help you become a valuable asset within an organization.”
