College of Communication

Your gift of any size can help reach our biggest goal ever–2,000 donors during the Blue Demon Challenge! 


The College of Communication provides students with a combination of timeless principles and up-to-the-minute tools, whether they're pursuing journalism; public relations and advertising; health communication; media studies; radio, television and film; relational, group and organizational communication; or culture and communication. 


50 donors already UNLOCKED an additional $10,000 for the College from alumnus John A. Ybarra (CMN '84) and Karen Y. Ybarra to establish the Ybarra Family Scholarship for College of Communication students.


But there's still more that your gift can do! If we reach 2,000 donors, members of DePaul's Board of Trustees will double their commitment. You can help DePaul MAKE HISTORY and secure a total of $100,000 from the Board. 

What an amazing 36 hours for DePaul University!
