For four decades, the McGill Lecture has brought significant figures in journalism to the University of Georgia to help us honor Ralph McGill’s courage as an editor.
In 2007, we added the McGill Symposium, bringing together students, faculty and leading journalists to consider what journalistic courage means and how it is exemplified by reporters and editors.
In 2009, we awarded the first McGill Medal to a U.S. journalist whose career has exemplified journalistic courage.
All of this is for a single purpose: to advance journalistic courage.
Your gift to the McGill Lecture and Endowment Fund helps us sustain our effort to advance journalistic courage and carry it forward. Gifts support all McGill Programs, the McGill Lecture, McGill Symposium and McGill Medal.
