Our students remain at the core of our initiatives over the last five years. From the first female African American Student Government Association president to a photographer's spread in Vogue Italia, Edelman CCCA students and alumni serve as pioneering voices in the world. The last five years also featured over a 5% increase in Edelman CCCA students, including majors across our six departments.
