Our Mission:
The CCI Giving Society recognizes alumni & friends who support students and faculty directly through annual gifts

Annual gifts from our alumni and friends provide students with opportunities to:
  • Enter their documentary films in film festivals
  • Present their research at conferences
  • Participate in national and regional competitions
  • Visit major IT, Advertising and Public Relations companies
  • Give back to the local community providing workshops on technology, social media and media production
  • Recognize excellence in student leadership, research and service
  • Support faculty who manage these student experiences and mentor students

"As a curious person by nature, I always seek to be part of new opportunities and professional and academic adventures, but sometimes finances can hinder ambition. I am incredibly honored and grateful to have been a recipient of a scholarship from CCI that reaffirms my commitment to academic excellence and motivates me to push myself further. Thank you for the invaluable support and for helping me embark on this transformative journey."
