Support USC Annenberg

A New Paradigm

At a time when communication, journalism and public relations are at the heart of our culture, commerce and politics like never before, the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism is uniquely positioned to lead the way forward and shape the future of the digital age. Our academic rigor puts us at the very top of the world’s communication schools, and the excellence and energy of our faculty, students, facilities, technological capabilities and connections with our industries of practice are second to none. To lead and navigate rapid change, we need a new paradigm — one which will drive three priorities in the years ahead: new connections, new foundations and new conversations. Critical to the success of these priorities is you. Your support of these initiatives will empower students and faculty to disrupt, transform and lead the communication and media industries into the future.
