Transcript of Breakdown of the Moody Foundation's Endowment to the College
To establish an "idea fund" that will invest in new curricula, courses, online education, research and student activities.
Research and Outreach Centers
To create 10 $1 million endowments for the Moody College's research and community outreach centers: the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life; the Denius-Sams Gaming Academy; a new Health Communication Center; the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas; the Office of Survey Research; Reporting Texas; the Speech and Hearing Center; the Telecommunications and Information Policy Institute; the Texas Program in Sports and Media; and the UT Film Institute.
To provide a $1 million endowment for each of the college's five departments (advertising and public relations, communication sciences and disorders, communication studies, journalism and radio-television-film) to support departmental leaders and course and curricular development.
Undergraduate Curricular and Cocurricular Work
To support learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom, including student media projects, undergraduate research and student leadership organizations, and to create the Moody Scholars Program, an honors program for first- and second-year students.
Graduate Student Recruitment
To provide additional teaching and research fellowships for master's and doctoral students, more than doubling the amount of funding available for graduate students.
Classroom Space and Facilities
To refurbish portions of the Jesse H. Jones Communication Complex, create three new lecture halls in the Communication (CMB) Building, conference space and a new pedestrian bridge between the Belo Center for New Media and the Jesse H. Jones Complex. The university will provide an additional $5 million for this project.
