Murrow College of Communication
Join Us In “Making Murrow”

Edward R. Murrow ‘30 was a pioneer in the field of broadcast journalism. It is no coincidence that his college experience included access to expert faculty, state-of-the-art equipment, and hands-on experience at KWSC, one of the nation’s few campus radio stations at that time.


You can continue the Murrow legacy with a gift during #CougsGive. Please join us as we embark on "Making Murrow," a path to improve the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication and mold students into the next generation of industry pioneers.


THANK YOU to our generous sponsorship donors who made Murrow matches and challenges possible! Bruce Amundson (’75), 
Art Eckman (’64), Adam Peterson (’02), and Liz Pritchard (’80) are passionate about Murrow student success and committed to fulfill these gifts.


Dean’s Excellence Fund 
Your gift to the Dean’s Excellence Fund will enable the Murrow College to increase its student support services! Please join us as we take steps to establish the Murrow Center for Student Success, for the first time housing all of these services in one place. Almost 40 percent of the Murrow student body is first-generation college students. Expanding student support services sets up students for success by ensuring they have access to the best resources for their education.

These services include professional development programs that help students with resume-writing, portfolio building, interview skills and mentorships; study abroad and internship opportunities; and one-on-one counseling and tutoring services.


Digital Excellence Fund
By giving to the Digital Excellence Fund, you ensure that Murrow students have access to state-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge tools and programs. You help maintain the Murrow College’s reputation as an authority and leader in new media and emerging technologies. 


Murrow Scholarship Excellence Fund
Your contribution to the Murrow Scholarship Excellence Fund demonstrates how much you believe in Murrow students. You will help provide scholarships for students studying journalism, media production, science and technology communication, advertising and public relations. Your generosity ensures that students have the financial support they need to focus on their studies and graduate. 


Art Eckman Sports Communication Excellence Fund
Your gift to the Art Eckman Sports Communication Excellence Fund will help strengthen and expand our newly-established sports communication curriculum, provide access to conferences and learning experiences, and support sports communication internships. You can help strengthen this newly-established minor and ensure success for our students pursuing this area of study!
