Giving Opportunities

From the days when WSU’s Ida Lou Anderson mentored Edward R. Murrow to the upcoming graduating class of students, the Murrow College has consistently educated the leaders of our profession. Each and every gift by alumni, friends, faculty and staff to the new Murrow College of Communication has a profound impact on our ability to prepare our graduates for the changing media landscape, to develop research that will improve the health and well-being of our society, and to drive important discussions through signature outreach programs like the Murrow Symposium.
