I’d rather see “public relations program” as a recipient for educational funding, but it’s still good news.
UT journalism school receives $250,000 grant
— reported by the Austin Business Journal
The journalism school at the University of Texas has received $250,000 as part of a larger national effort to improve education in the subject.
Given by the Carnegie Corp. of New York, the money allows UT to join seven other U.S. journalism schools in the Carnegie-Knight Initiative on the Future of Journalism. Other participating universities include Northwestern University, Columbia University, the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Missouri.
UT will use part of its money to develop curriculum in partnership with its other departments. The journalism school will offer specialized courses in three areas: the Latino community, technology and media literacy.
