School of Journalism & Mass Communications

The William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications’ student media organizations — the University Daily Kansan, KUJH-TV, The Agency and Media Crossroads — help students put into practice what they learn in the classroom. For students, these organizations are an essential bridge between learning the journalism curriculum and testing those skills so they can have the experience needed to get a job when they graduate. Many of our students who have made the commitment to work in these media organizations get top internships and in many cases, they are offered jobs before graduation in part due to the skills they acquire working “on the job” in these on-campus media labs.

These student media organizations need support to keep providing these experiential learning opportunities for School of Journalism students and to be able to expand to keep up with current media technologies and practices. Many of our students and alumni say without a doubt that working for the Kansan, KUJH, The Agency or Media Crossroads was the best decision that they made at KU. After working in the real world, they see that their experiences at the J-School student media organizations gave them the skills they needed to make the most of their internships or succeed and advance in their careers.

Your gift will help us sustain and expand these experiential learning media opportunities at the School of Journalism. Thank you for supporting the students and giving back to KU!
