KU School of Journalism and Mass Communications Overview
The University of Kansas William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications is at the forefront of the communication evolution. Our students and graduates possess the skills and values that are essential to thrive in today’s everchanging digital world. Our students and researchers contribute across various realms such as securing personal information in the digital age, reporting in news deserts and assisting readers in identifying misinformation.

Student Success and Scholarship Support
Many of our students face financial barriers, and scholarship funds enable students to obtain an education they may not have access to otherwise. Scholarships support students in need, encourage diversity and attract and retain talent. We are proud that 93% of students who apply receive at least one scholarship. Our top priority is to ensure students can graduate and achieve their highest professional aspirations. Please consider a gift in support of student scholarships to help make their dreams come true.

Healthy and Vibrant Communities
The William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications is committed to initiatives that enhance communities and support healthy students. Students grow in their craft and understanding of diverse communities, and our local citizens benefit from staying up to date on local news when we take the classroom into the community through projects like the Eudora Times. Another example is Good Morning Indian Country, the only student-led Native American news show in the country.

Research and Discovery
The school of journalism and mass communications leads in research and discovery in the field of media literacy. The Center for Digital Inclusion is changing lives through a digital literacy training program for women transitioning from incarceration back into the community.

The Center for Excellence in Health Communication to Underserved Populations is a comprehensive center addressing communication about health promotion and disease prevention to at-risk populations locally, nationally and internationally. Please consider supporting these and future projects like them at the journalism school that can improve and change lives.
