Since 2015, the College of Communication & Information Sciences has made significant progress toward five strategic priorities. We strengthened our research, innovated within our classrooms, built up our community, developed leaders and expanded our reach. We have approached our priorities with focus and creativity, and we are proud of the accomplishments and successes of our faculty, staff, students and alumni.
As we look to the future and a new phase for our strategic plan, we seek to permanently resource our faculty, students and programs through UA’s Rising Tide Capital Campaign to ensure sustainable and measurable progress. We have identified four areas where we seek support:
-Endowed Faculty Positions: Recruit leaders, experts and artists
-Endowed Research Support: Launch research efforts in political, sports and science communication
-Undergraduate Scholarships, Graduate Student Scholarships and Experiential Learning Endowments
-Expanding Access for Undergraduates and Graduate Students
Investment in these areas will lay the foundation for our future. The funding of these priorities will provide security to inspire innovation and ensure our graduates leave better prepared to become active citizens and industry leaders.
Thank you for your investment in our future.
