Funding Priority

Fuel Faculty Innovation

Our faculty rank among the best and brightest innovators in media and journalism. They are international thought-leaders sought for their expertise both by the media professions and academic colleagues. We will continue to fund creative approaches to research and teaching — and increase endowed professorships and research funding — because faculty who remain curious students of the world make the best teachers. And scholars who create new knowledge burnish our reputation and raise our stature in higher education.
