College journalists from across the U.S. will learn leadership, management, content development and new media production skills at the Henry W. Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication on July 22-27, 2018, at the 23nd annual Management Seminar for College News Editors (MSCNE).
Sponsored by the Cox Institute for Journalism Innovation, Management and Leadership, the seminar will be led by more than 20 educators and industry professionals. The late Conrad Fink started the program in 1996 to better prepare campus news editors for top management positions at their news organizations.
Featured presenters in previous years have included Frank LoMonte, executive director of the Student Press Law Center; Butch Ward, senior faculty at The Poynter Institute; Akili Ramsess, executive director of the National Press Photographers Association; Selwyn Crawford (ABJ ’81), team leader/special writer for The Dallas Morning News; Kim Wilson, founder & CEO of Social News Desk; and photojournalist Billy Weeks, among others. Grady College faculty also will lead sessions.
MSCNE participants will also travel to Atlanta and meet with reporters, editors and producers. Student editors will gain hands-on multimedia experience and participate in a simulated news event that involves UGA public safety and communications officials.
