Communication Studies

Giving to Communication Studies

A gift to the Department of Communication will help us attract and retain those students and faculty with great academic potential. Your gift may go to programs, scholarships, fellowships, professorships, technological innovations, research, renovations, and new facilities. We also know not everyone has the same capacity to give. Remember, the percentage of alumni and patron giving is an important endorsement of any department or program and an important indicator of the quality of our work. Each gift is valuable.

 

Opportunities for Giving

A number of funds have already been set up to support department activities. You are also invited to donate funds directly to the department for a specific purpose of your choice. However, if you prefer, your contribution may be given without a designation and used at the discretion of the department. Your donation may be tax deductible.
