Student Statehouse Reporting Programs
Dec 15 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Join the University of Vermont Center for Community News for a free community journalism lecture.

As the number of full-time statehouse reporters has decreased, student reporters in University/College led programs are stepping in to fill the gap and provide high-quality experiential learning for the students. Here we hear from four of those programs; Colleen Steffen with Indiana’s Statehouse Files, Alex Bryan-Campos with VCUs Capitol News Service, Chris Drew with LSU’s statehouse news bureau, and Rafael Lorente with Maryland’s Capitol News Service. For more details see the case studies here. The panel is moderated by Kathleen McElroy of UT’s Moody School of Communication in Austin.
