Friends of C&J!
Department of Communication and Journalism relies on the funding
support of individuals, corporations and foundations to offer
the highest quality of education to our students as well as a professional
environment for faculty and staff to deliver that education.
While the base funding for the department is achieved through state
funding and tuition, donors provide the critical extra support
needed for scholarships, internships, research, building renovations
and state-of-the-art equipment.
At present the department is embarked on a major renovation of
the aging C&J building, pictured above. An architectural landmark
designed by the famous John Gaw Meem and built in 1948, the university
has committed to modernizing the interior and dedicating more of
its space to communication and journalism classes and facilities.
A summary of the project is available in a PDF of the department's
latest newsletter, which can be downloaded here.
Opportunities are available for classrooms, teaching positions,
computer laboratories and even the entire building to be named
in honor of donors.
The university's Development Office staff is available to assist
any individual, corporate or foundation representative interested
in donating to the C&J Department. All donations to assist in enhancing
communication and journalism education at UNM are accepted through
the University of New Mexico Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization,
which allows gifts to be fully tax deductible under current IRS
