Brief Description of your program: Newspaper and website (Statesman) is produced by students in our Publications Production & Design course.  We currently have a staff of 44 who produce 9 printed issues and maintain a website of breaking news, podcasts, and sports coverage.

Statesman staff members must complete two semester-long electives: Journalistic Writing and Advanced Journalistic Writing.

Best Advice or Hardest Lesson Learned: The best days in our newsroom are the days when I speak the least.  Watching my students discuss, debate, and cover the most controversial topics of our time shows me that they respect the trust they’ve been given.  It also gives me great hope for our future.
