Keep Us on the Leading Edge

 

Two things make the School of Journalism and Communication exceptional: life-changing learning experiences and groundbreaking research. Generous donors like you make both possible.

 

Hands-On Learning

 

Doing real-life work turns wide-eyed students into innovative professionals. Students apply what they learn in the classroom out in the field—in student-run agencies and publications, during premier internships, and on experiential trips around the nation and world. They say this hands-on fieldwork gives them a crucial edge when they’re looking for jobs. But many can’t afford these transformative experiences without financial help.

 

Faculty Research and Projects

 

Blazing new trails in research and practice keeps our faculty at the forefront of a rapidly evolving media landscape. As our researchers probe the role of media and communication in the digital age—from virtual reality to community engagement to solutions journalism—they’re advancing the field while keeping a sharp focus on ethics. But they can’t do it without you!

 

How You Can Help

 

Give. Make a gift of any size to the SOJC Dean’s Fund for Excellence and Innovation, and help us reach our goal: 200 gifts of $5 or more. Your gift will help unlock challenge gifts throughout the day to maximize impact.

 

Share. Help spread the word. Share this page with your network on Twitter and Instagram, invite fellow Ducks to our Facebook event, and post about the SOJC Dean’s Fund for Excellence and Innovation using the #DucksGive hashtag.
