No other university in the country operates a combination of three TV stations, two radio stations, radio reading service, and a 24/7 live digital streaming platform. Now is a challenging time for public media networks, and right now, WKAR is uniquely positioned to redefine public media for the 21st century and better serve our audiences—from East Lansing to East Timor.
WKAR seeks to raise $32.0 million in the Empower Extraordinary campaign. We will achieve this goal with a mix of endowment and annual funds.
To date we have raised $27.9 million, but more private support is needed to achieve our full potential and propel this great university forward.

“The mission of WKAR is to connect people to powerful ideas that inspire personal growth, strengthen their sense of community, expand their world, and encourage respect and greater appreciation for different cultures and viewpoints.”
