Media Literacy

In a world shaped by bits and bytes, basic literacy means the ability to read, write and understand how digital media works. Command of the critical and technical skills needed to navigate in our media-driven culture, thrive in the workplace, and become engaged citizens and astute consumers is more important than ever.

Your gift helps us invest in the future – today.

We are building an endowment to support future equipment purchases for the CCAM. This endowment will ensure the Center remains at the cutting edge of digital media over the next 20 years. We have secured many pledges to this endowment; we are still seeking additional funds to ensure that the needs of our students, faculty and staff are met in the 21st century.
