Giving Opportunities

Whether in the realm of health and the environment, politics and media, or emerging communication technologies, Department of Communication researchers are defining — and redefining — the vital role of communication in a sustainable future. Consider the opportunity to make a personal impact on the growth and development of our department through a donation to the Communication Excellence Fund.

Naming Opportunities

Or consider a naming opportunity! In correspondence with a monetary donation, patrons can name spaces for themselves, their organizations, or other designated individuals (see chart below for available spaces). If you are interested in naming a space or have further questions about this opportunity, please contact Poppy McLeod at plm29@cornell.edu or Lauren Ryder at lar48@cornell.edu. An investment in the Department of Communication is not merely an investment in steel and glass, but in structure and vision — into the vital work of gifted scholars today and for years to come.
