Philanthropic support plays a crucial role in maintaining CMCI’s standard of academic excellence and leadership position in the field of interdisciplinary communication and technology. As a new college, CMCI has a number of pressing financial needs, including student scholarships, program support and facility improvements. Donations to the CMCI Dean’s Fund provide the great flexibility to meet these needs. Alumni and friends can also direct their support to specific programs.

Your investment will have a direct impact on our students and faculty and the communities they serve. Every gift makes a difference.
