Support the College of Journalism and Mass Communications

When you are contacted by a University of Nebraska student, we hope you will give to the College of Journalism and Mass Communications. Private support continues to be the backbone of the CoJMC. Your investment—large or small, scholarship or a piece of equipment—will help to build our program. Please take three-and-a-half minutes to hear firsthand from students and alums about the value of giving to the college. Here's a wish list of equipment and opportunities to which you can donate as mentioned in the December 2012 campaign newsletter. Contact Joanna Nordhues, at to discuss a gift.
