CCCA Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence

Join us!

When & Where: April 1, 2017 at 6:00 PM. Eynon Ballroom, Student Center, Glassboro NJ. 

Seating is limited. Tickets are $50. Drinks are included (beer & wine).

Celebrity Chef Charlie Ayers is our featured chef and speaker. “Chef Charlie” is the original Executive Chef for Google, former chef for the Grateful Dead, author of Food 2.0, and founder of Calafia Cafe and Market A Go-Go in Palo Alto. His motto “eat, drink and be merry” reflects both a long-standing tradition shared by many and a dedication to quality that Chef Charlie will demonstrate through the meal he prepares and presents. 

Why the Celebration? A half century ago, five faculty members from then-Glassboro State College’s English Department created a communications program to teach writing. Their work established a foundation for what is now the College of Communication and Creative Arts with 1,500 students completing more than two-dozen majors, minors, and certificates, and 250 faculty members. Our award-winning graduate and undergraduate programs and the large network of successful alumni across the world are testimony to the integral position of CCCA within Rowan University’s growing role as a leader in educational innovation. Prof. Christopher Winkler is leading a short movie featuring interviews with some of the movers and shakers
