OLLU receives $50,000 grant for Mass Communication program

The City of San Antonio (COSA) has awarded OLLU a $50,000 Public, Educational and Governmental (PEG) grant to produce programming to be aired on TVSA Education.

The Mass Communication department will use the funding to purchase production equipment to create and deliver locally oriented programming.

The funding marks the third COSA grant for the Mass Communication program. Previous funding allowed students to produce high-quality programming for TVSA Education, which included student newscasts, public service announcements, short films and TV shows.

As a result, students have received robust instruction, gained valuable experience, and are now comfortable using modern equipment similar to what they will encounter as they pursue careers as video editors, camera operators, producers, and directors.
