Giving Back to the Department of Communication Studies
Every gift to the WVU Department of Communication Studies is important. By building a strong network of alumni, friends and parents who are annual contributors, the Department is able to provide scholarships, services, programs and enhanced facilities for our students. Collectively, hundreds of individual gifts allow the WVU Department of Communication Studies to carry on the tradition of excellence at West Virginia University.
What Are Our Priorities?
There are many academically gifted and talented undergraduate students in the Department of Communication Studies. An endowed Undergraduate Scholarship fund would provide the capability to reward and nurture the accomplishments these extraordinary students.
Communication Studies students actively participate in internships, attend conferences, and some pursue study abroad opportunities. The rising financial costs of this critical education experience is forcing many of the students to delay or even forgo this type of opportunity. Student Enrichment Opportunities would help offset some of the financial burden for these activities, making them more accessible to our students.
The Communication Studies Department has widely recognized strengths in both research and instruction. The prestige of an endowed Communication Research Professorship would provide the department with the ability to recruit a nationally distinguished faculty member for a specialty area such as Corporate and Organizational Communication or Communication Theory.
