- Portfolio and Reflective Statements: Portfolio of two or more samples of your current work demonstrating communication excellence. Each piece should be accompanied by a 500-word reflective statement explaining why you have included the piece in your portfolio.
- Submit all materials to the Program Director by email or via USPS mail to:
