Giving circle

The School of Communication Giving Circle was established by the school’s alumni advisory board. The purpose of the Circle is to encourage alumni to join the effort, combining annual support, to meet the fundraising priorities of the School.

Giving Circle Priorities


  • Internship and field experience program that places 400 students annually in professional positions
  • Communication Week, the largest on-campus school event bringing alumni and students together

Faculty Professional Development

  • Allows the school to maintain and enhance its national reputation, recruit outstanding new faculty and students, and ensure that class content and scholarship remains on the cutting edge.

Media Convergence

  • Creation of a media convergence center will provide a laboratory for students and faculty to jointly investigate, understand, and create new convergent message strategies that improve our communication in our work and social life.

Technology and Innovation

  • Maintenance and replacement of equipment and technology for operations in TV-10, the Vidette, WZND, and WGLT.
