a School of Communications in Fall 2000, we have been blessed with
friends and alumni who have provided gifts and pledges to help us
meet student needs and strengthen the School.
Gifts support our operations and provide scholarships so that students
can come to Elon, travel to professional conferences, use the latest
technology and hear media professionals in class. We appreciate
the support of the Hearst Foundation; Landmark Communications, publisher
of the Greensboro News & Record; the Hurley family; the Burlington
Times-News; the late Marjorie Hunter, an Elon graduate who covered
the White House for the New York Times and left much of her estate
to Elon; and numerous gifts and pledges from Communications Advisory
Board members, faculty and staff, parents, foundations and publishers.
In addition, we have benefited for more than a decade from the A.J.
Fletcher endowed professorship in Communications.
We invite you to become a partner in building one of the nation's
premier communications schools. An endowment provides the resources
to hire the best faculty and staff, attract deserving students,
maintain state-of-the-art technology and create curricular innovations
that are the hallmark of an excellent program.
Naming opportunities recognize individuals and corporations who
partner with Elon in strengthening the School of Communications.
