Whether in the realm of health and the environment, or in politics and media, or in 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 our new space. Make a gift. Note: Donations should be directed to fund number 0009978 and fund name Communication Department Learning and Research Campaign.

We're offering patrons the opportunity to have spaces named for themselves, their organizations, or other designated individuals in correspondence with their monetary donations. Please see the chart below to view available naming opportunities. If you are interested in naming a space or have further questions about this opportunity, please contact Katherine McComas at or Ross Evancoe at

An investment in the Department of Communication's new venue 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. We thank you wholeheartedly for your generosity and support.
