Fuel Faculty InnovationOur 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.
- Student Support
Maximize the Student ExperienceThe strength of both our undergraduate and graduate programs is critical to the overall student experience at the school. We will secure and expand the fellowships and stipends available for national and international scholars to further their research. The Hussman School of Journalism and Media is committed to providing national and global immersion opportunities to all of our students. Immersive experiences transform and deepen students’ understanding of how to communicate effectively with diverse communities. We will expand these life-changing experiences in and out of the classroom.
- Student Support
Transform Our SpaceAs media continue to transform, so must our surroundings. The space in which our students learn and grow needs to inspire and accommodate flexibility, emerging technologies and a collaborative learning environment. Carroll Hall’s utility has fallen behind the industry standard. We must modernize our facilities in order to attract talent and stay nationally competitive.
