Project Description

Help support student journalism at CMU. Help fund Central Michigan Life.

Journalists are essential workers. We believe student journalism empowers and informs the Central Michigan University community. Our journalism creates a more engaged, educated student body.

For 100 years, the student journalists of Central Michigan Life have served as the editorially independent voice of the student body, funded primarily by advertising dollars from the university and Mount Pleasant community.

COVID-19 has caused a catastrophic disruption to that advertising-based revenue model. Many of our long-time advertising partners are struggling to recover from COVID-19-related business challenges. Those changes have forced Central Michigan Life to reduce student editor positions and cut student work hours for the 2020-2021 academic year. Fewer advertising dollars means less journalism.

We are living through a remarkable time that must be put into context for today’s readers and recorded as the “first draft of history.” We need your help. We are asking alumni, community members and online readers to help financially support our mission to keep the CMU community informed with our journalism.


In addition to its mission to cover the news, Central Michigan Life helps journalism, advertising, public relations, graphic design and multimedia students earn professional experience that leads to jobs in the news business and beyond. Our graduates go on to have productive careers at publications like Detroit Free Press, The Detroit News, MLive, The Hill, The Washington Post, New York Times, and many, many other news outlets, advertising agencies and public relations firms.

You can help us continue to provide students a quality experience delivering the news as the local economy rebounds. For the 2020-21 academic year, 100 percent of your financial support will go toward helping CM Life pay our student staff.

Please help support student journalists at CMU. Help fund Central Michigan Life.
