San Jose State University’s School of Journalism and Mass Communications has received an $8.7 million bequest from the estate of the late Jack and Emma Anderson, who owned the press where the Spartan Daily student newspaper was published for 20 years beginning in the mid-1950s. The gift will be used to help fund the school’s continuing evolution in the digital era.
“The Jack and Emma Anderson Fund will support our dynamic vision to be recognized internationally as a leader in new media and social media research in higher education, reflecting Silicon Valley’s energy and innovative spirit,” said School of Journalism and Mass Communications Director Bob Rucker.
