O'Brien Fellowship Conferences

O'Brien Fellowship Conferences

Every year, the O’Brien Fellowship convenes conferences to showcase the published work of the previous year’s fellows and the Marquette student journalists who assisted them.

The idea is to drive discussion of best practices that can address the problems identified in the journalism.

Watch conference presentations on O’Brien’s YouTube channel.

These conferences have been held at Marquette and featured each fellow from the previous year. Going forward, the O’Brien Fellowship may sponsor conferences in the fellow’s home city or another site relevant to the project.

These events are valuable opportunities to bring together fellow journalists, students and interested members of the public to discuss the issues raised in the yearlong public service journalism projects.
