Reed College of Media

The WVU Reed College of Media is committed to providing students with an innovative curriculum, as well as the skills and mindset to adapt and succeed in the evolving and dynamic media industry.

While we continue to provide students with fundamental skills in writing, reporting, research, media ethics and law, we are continually adapting our curriculum and programs to remain relevant to our students and industry.

Why we need your support


Your generosity provides the resources we need to support new opportunities and initiatives designed to address the challenges our industry and academic disciplines face in the ever-changing media landscape. Thanks to you we can:
• Innovate our curriculum
• Expand students’ access to cutting-edge technology and media applications
• Provide more hands-on learning experiences for our students
• Focus on our real-world experiential learning and community outreach projects
• Support professional development opportunities for faculty so they can bring new knowledge into their classrooms

How you can help


On the Day of Giving, you can help the WVU Reed College of Media by supporting our areas of greatest need.


Greatest Needs
Our greatest need is support of the Dean’s Fund, which provides the flexibility to direct resources where they are most needed. Annual gifts to this fund support the College in developing unique initiatives, as well as supporting students with scholarships and enhancement funds for internships and study abroad opportunities.

Scholarships
Gifts to scholarships and student enhancement funds provide much-needed financial support to enhance student success in the classroom, as well as provide opportunities for hands-on learning experiences.

 

IMC/DMC Scholarship Fund

The IMC/DMC Scholarship is awarded to students enrolled in the Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC) or Data Marketing Communications (DMC) graduate programs each fall and is the first and only scholarship dedicated to online graduate students in the College of Media.



We appreciate your help during these tough economic times as we continue to prepare the communications leaders of the future.
