Smith Hall Renovation
Upon completion, the new Smith Hall will offer exciting, state-of-the-art facilities and equipment for the Department of Electronic Media and Film. From studio to sound stage, including a VR animation space, newsroom and screening theatre, the new Smith Hall will continue to benefit the leading film program in Maryland along with Communication Studies and Mass Communication.
Asian Arts and Culture Center
As the Asian Arts and Culture Center turns 50, supporting and amplifying Asian American and Pacific Islander voices is more important than ever. Supporting community-based programs and exhibitions, such as the Asia North Festival, battles xenophobia and contributes to civic health on campus and beyond.
The Public Communications Center
The Public Communication Center (PCC) serves thousands of Tigers across campus in the areas of communication, writing and public speaking. Students mentor other students by providing writing workshops, one-on-one tutoring and speech-giving advice. Your support will help create paid opportunities for students, including student mentor services and funding for a part-time PCC assistant director.
The TU Marching Band (TUMB)
The TUMB builds more than Tiger pride during athletic events and parades, it is tied to critical music education curriculum, where music students get hands-on conducting, choreographing, and directing experience. Among other needed support, most urgent is a new conductor’s stand which will ensure the safety of our student musicians.
Endowments signal support for faculty in their creative work and impact the lives and education of current and future students. Launching innovative faculty-endowed positions in Music Therapy, Arts and Medicine, and interdisciplinary arts, allow students to engage across disciplines. Gifts will also help to secure a Director of Galleries position to oversee gallery spaces and manage the TU Art Collection.
TU Student Abroad Programs and Student Travel
Supporting the travel costs for regional internships and study away programs ensures our students remain engaged as civically-inspired citizens, both on- and off-campus. Experiential learning builds real-world relationships and networking opportunities, helping students realize their career goals.
“I wouldn’t be in college if it wasn’t for financial aid. The Francis Soistman Top Ten Scholars—kind of saved me.”
