Communication unites people, communities, and organizations around the globe. A major in communication connects individuals and institutions across academic fields and global borders. We understand that tomorrow's leaders must possess the scholarly background and intellectual skills necessary to manage complex social issues effectively. Thus, we focus on helping students develop human potential, analyze problems, and engage society through message design, persuasion, negotiation, and collaboration.
As one of the top programs in the country, the department relies on its alumni and friends to support its activities, to attract and retain top scholars and promising students, and to provide students with the best opportunities to learn and develop. We count on your support to help us educate students for civic engagement, to provide them with critical insights about new media, and to help them learn how to develop effective professional and social networks.
Our department's continued success depends on the generosity of our donors. Your gift, no matter how large or small, can make a difference in the opportunities for our undergraduate and graduate students. Your gift of $100 to $1000 provides educational opportunities for our undergraduate and graduate students. $1000 and over makes you a member of the Chancellor's Council. Please make your gift to the Department of Communication today by going to our Ways to Give page.
