Why Give?

For more than 40 years, FIU has instilled in our students a commitment to learning, entrepreneurship, research, innovation, and creativity. As we evolved from a two-year, upper-division school into a university with a lower division and doctoral programs, FIU has grown and changed in response to students’ needs, trends in education, economic conditions and the vision of our South Florida community. Such growth would not be possible without the generous support of our alumni and friends.

Achieving excellence in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication (SJMC) requires the support of our generous community. Charitable gifts from Corporate, Foundation, Alumni and Friends make it possible for our faculty and students to achieve academic distinction while serving our local, national and international communities through innovative programming.

Your charitable investments in the SJMC make it possible for dreams to be achieved, goals to be accomplished, and new ideas to be discovered.

Charitable investments give our School the impetus to make strategic achievements that will competitively empower our students, faculty, and programs in the here and now and for years to come.

From scholarships and fellowships to research and development, your financial support provides our school with the additional resources needed for competitive success. Giving to the SJMC supports students, faculty, and staff in their efforts to Be Worlds Ahead and build on the infrastructure of higher education at our university.

Your support of our programs will foster an academic environment, promote interdisciplinary approaches, facilitate work groups and think tanks for ground-breaking research, leverage connections to industry and lead the nation in creating the latest educational technologies.
