Stauffer-Flint Hall, the home of the William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Kansas, is undergoing remodeling during the summer and fall 2019. The last time Stauffer-Flint received a major remodel was in 1982. As we continue to build on the timeless core values in our curriculum, we know that students and professionals are looking for an environment that also reflects the dynamic and digital world of today's media. Please consider a gift to support the renovation of our beloved journalism building into a state-of-the-art media lab.
