College news editors network and polish skills at the 2018 Management Seminar for College News Editors.

College news editors invited to leadership and management seminar at UGA

Applications are now being accepted for the 24th annual Management Seminar for College News Editors July 28-Aug.2, 2019, at the University of Georgia Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. Each summer, 50 top editors representing colleges and universities from around the country sharpen their leadership, management and multimedia skills at this seminar taught by leading industry professionals and educators.

Editors spend the week networking and sharing their best coverage in an idea exchange. MSCNE participants travel to Atlanta to meet with reporters, editors and producers at CNN and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. They also visit the National Center for Civil and Human Rights.

In addition to sessions on editing, leadership, management, news judgement, press freedoms and visual journalism, new this year will be a session on mental health and trauma journalism. Editors also will gain hands-on multimedia experience through a simulated breaking news event with UGA Police and Emergency Management.

Sponsored by the James M. Cox Jr. Institute for Journalism Innovation, Management & Leadership, the program was created by former UGA journalism professor Conrad Fink to train the news industry’s next generation of leaders. Camayak is also a sponsoring organization.
