The campaign for Tennessee update
2009 was a good year for the College of Communication and Information. As of the end of December, we have raised 61% of our $10 million goal. Thanks to the generosity of our alumni and friends, the college raised $653,549 during the 2009 calendar year. This is the second highest grossing fundraising year for CCI during the Campaign for Tennessee and we are very grateful to all our donors!
As we head into the final two years of the campaign, we are steadily moving toward our goal. With exciting projects such as the new CCI Auditorium’s Take-A-Seat Campaign, the Scripps Convergence Lab, and many other initiatives to help CCI students and faculty, we hope that you will choose to make a difference by supporting the college.
