Support the Walter Cronkite School
of Journalism and Mass Communication

Campaign ASU 2020 TOGETHER, OUR POTENTIAL IS LIMITLESS

Why Give

The Cronkite School embraces the digital age and an entrepreneurial mindset, while remaining focused on the “Cronkite values” of traditional journalism: accuracy, responsibility, objectivity, and integrity. Industry leaders praise the school's full immersion professional programs, referred to as the “teaching hospital” model of journalism education. Campaign ASU 2020 will enable the Cronkite School to provide students with more opportunities to work side-by-side with professional journalists and media professionals, space to experiment with new forms of storytelling, ways to engage audiences and explore revenue models that can benefit the future of the industry, and the means to provide critical information to a local and regional citizenry.
