DePaul University Excellence in Journalism Scholarship, 2010
Marquette’s university-wide focus on social justice aligns with my aims in teaching and practicing journalism.
The curricular emphasis on community journalism and investigative reporting both prepares students for success and represents the social value of the field.
The storied journalism program, faculty and facilities make this a remarkable home for a teacher and scholar of journalism.
