Training global leaders, shaping the media landscape

Medill is where enduring values meet innovation. Where compelling stories join forces with powerful data. Where global perspectives and on-the-ground reporting are an essential part of learning and leading. Building on nearly a century of excellence, Medill is poised to become the top school of its kind in the world.

When you support Medill at any level, you provide the resources that enable our unsurpassed education and allow us to lead journalism and marketing communications for the 21st century.

Gifts to Medill will help us reach a new level of excellence and influence by investing in these priorities:

  • Enabling life-changing experiences for students with scholarships, travel grants, and support for residencies and research around the world
  • Bringing the best faculty in the world to Medill through endowed chairs and a visiting faculty program
  • Strengthening our signature programs like Medill Media Teens, the National Security Journalism Initiative, the Medill Justice Project, the IMC Immersion Quarter, and reporting specializations in areas such as business, sports, and health care
  • Expanding our local, national, and international impact through our campuses in Evanston and Qatar, news bureaus in Chicago and Washington, DC, and a proposed new West Coast campus

Direct your gift to an individual department or program, or give to the Medill Annual Fund, providing resources to seed new initiatives, meet pressing needs, and sustain our outstanding educational experience.

Supporters who make leadership gifts of $1,000 or more annually to Medill are recognized with membership in the Signature Society.
