Communication Studies is one the fastest growing disciplines
in the country. At UNL the communication studies major has grown almost 300% in
recent years because more and more students realize the importance that
effective communication has in their lives. Our students are getting excellent
jobs in a variety of career fields because employers also recognize the
of hiring effective communicators who understand communication in diverse
contexts. In fact, employers consistently cite communication as the most
important knowledge and skills their employees need in the 21st century.
Our students are among the best and brightest in the
University. We also have a group of highly dedicated and well-trained
instructors who care about teaching and care about their students. In addition,
the faculty is on the cutting edge of research in their respective areas of
interest. A number of our instructors have received outstanding teaching,
research, and service awards.
A gift to this fund will be utilized by the department to enhance programming for students, recruit faculty and graduate students, providing special training programs, etc.
All funds donated to the Phyllis Japp Student Development Fund will go directly to support students with their work, for example, to support student travel to professional meetings, attendance at a conference, or to help with research expenses.
