Share Your Expertise

Each of you has tremendous knowledge and experience to share with our students. We're always looking for new internships and externships and connections for employment.

If you are willing to sponsor an internship, please send specifics to Wendy Hodge who will post the information for our students.

We also are looking for externship sponsors. An externship is a "shadow" program. A student would observe you at work for a few days during a break between semesters. You can sign up through Career services.

Other ideas? Email Wendy Hodge.

Share Your Wealth

Our students benefit from gifts and support from alumni and friends who invest in expanding opportunities. These include endowed scholarships, a program excellence endowed fund, and an endowed lecture. Gifts are made in two categories: annual or major. 

Annual gifts of any size demonstrate your recognition of the value of your degree and your desire to see the program thrive. Please designate your annual gifts to the Department of Communication.

If you wish to make a major gift, please contact Dan Cleveland, our assistant dean of advancement, by emailing him or calling him at 540-231-5380.
