Communication Endowment for Innovation, Technology, and Training

Our First Point of Communication Is You.

 

It’s true!

 

So much of what we accomplish at the UMass Amherst Department of Communication is a direct result of the support we receive from you. Now, we have this incredible new Integrative Learning Center right in the middle of campus that helps us prepare our students for their future careers by using the most advanced technology and equipment. These rising industry leaders are pushing the limits of print, digital, and social media while honing their writing, speaking, and critical thinking skills for a global audience.

 

 

Your Support Makes This Possible.

 

As you know, one of the most exciting things about the field of Communication is that it’s constantly innovating and evolving to address the dizzying number of media platforms. We need to keep pace with these changes to meet the needs of our students and faculty in the new Integrative Learning Center and across the department as a whole.

That’s why we’ve created the Communication Endowment for Innovation, Technology, and Training. With your help, we plan to raise $100,000 for a fund that will allow the UMass Amherst Department of Communication to remain the gold standard among its peers.

Proceeds from this effort will give students access to new technology and equipment as it becomes available. At the same time, our faculty will be able to receive training in the latest teaching methodology in existing and emerging communication fields. All of which will continue to make UMass Amherst a destination for students who dream of changing the world through communication.

Please consider making a donation to the Communication Endowment for Innovation, Technology, and Training. As our field changes almost daily, there is one constant that will always be the key to our success:

You.
