With more than a century of exceptional education in media and journalism, the UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media proudly prepares students to ignite the public conversation in our state, the nation and the world, and to understand the role of communication in fostering democracy. We believe that meaningful and productive public conversation depends on the inclusion of diverse perspectives.
This past year, dynamic new faculty members joined us to enrich the scholarly and creative excellence of a faculty long known as international thought leaders.
And later this year, we will celebrate the grand opening of the Curtis Media Center at the gateway to the Polk Place campus quad. We’ve used this once-in-a-generation opportunity to create an innovative, collaborative place for teaching, learning and experimentation that is expected to be the top education technology hub for media and journalism in the nation.
Our alumni stand at the helm of media, public relations, advertising, journalism and higher education — just as our recent graduates enter their careers ready to lead in the next generation.
Thanks to strength and generosity of our 17,000-strong alumni network and many other committed donors and friends, the school has passed our $75 million Campaign for Carolina goal. We embrace the remaining months of the campaign as an opportunity to focus on our priorities of support for graduate fellowships, undergraduate immersive experiences, faculty innovation and the Curtis Media Center.
