The constant change in the field of communications has created a funding issue for communication schools trying to stay ahead of the technology curve.
The Moody College of Communication works to stay ahead by getting donations from alumni, corporations and non-affiliated “friends of the college,” or people who never attended the school but believe in what the college is doing and want to support teaching students in the changing communication and media environment.
Michael Wilson, the director of external relations at the Moody College, said “we all have got to recognize it costs us a lot more money to educate students than what we get through state appropriation and tuition and fees.”
