Chair’s Discretionary Fund

These funds enable the department, through its chair and executive faculty committee, to allocate funds where they are most needed: to support students traveling to a special event, to help recruit and retain the best faculty, to pay for that new digital editing suite, to help equip our classrooms, to keep up our media library, and a wide range of other activities. With state support declining, departments increasingly rely on such discretionary funds.

Communication Arts Internship Support Fund

One of the most important experiences a Comm Arts undergraduate can have is an internship, to apply knowledge, build skills, and develop career opportunities. Your gifts to this fund help students to be able to take unpaid internships, often in distant places, that otherwise they could not afford.

Digital Studies Fund

This fund supports courses designated as part of the rapidly growing Digital Studies Certificate, as well as faculty with critical expertise in this area. Contributions to this fund help maintain the department’s leadership in this constantly evolving area.
