Local businesses can get a communications audit from a nonprofit consulting firm at Purdue University Northwest in Hammond this fall.

Roach founded the program 29 years ago to give students the opportunity to learn from working with corporate and other clients.

“I knew what (the experiment) would do, if I could just get it started,” Roach said.
