Make a Gift to the Department of Communication/Journalism

The Communication/Journalism Department fund was created to sustain excellence in our professional program and support our students studying for careers in media and public relations.

With your help, the Department will be able to continue to fund expanded learning opportunities, such as hosting visiting professionals and upgraded technology, and enhance the overall experience of our students. Donations will support our following needs and priorities:


  • To increase the inclusiveness of the department population through scholarships and faculty development opportunities.
  • To support faculty development through attendance at professional meetings
  • To provide opportunities for students to meet and work with industry professionals through internships
  • To acquire, upgrade, and maintain equipment consistent with industry standards

Even a small gift will help benefit all of the students in our department and those who participate in our media outlets enabling future journalists and communication professionals to maximize their educational experience; it will make a difference to each deserving student.

Please make your check payable to SU Foundation/ Communication Journalism Department Fund and send it to:
