Update April 9, 2020: MSCNE Cancellation notice
Thank you for your interest in the Management Seminar for College News Editors. The University System of Georgia announced on April 3 that all state institutions, including UGA, must move to online-only classes this summer as a result of COVID-19. Regrettably, Grady College leadership has decided to cancel the Management Seminar for College News Editors that was scheduled for July 26-31. We look forward to coming back better and stronger in summer 2021 with the 25th anniversary of the program.
While we will not hold MSCNE, we will continue to welcome nominations for the 2020 Betty Gage Holland Award through June 1. The award recognizes campus journalists and their publications for distinguished service to honor and protect the integrity of public dialogue on America’s college campuses.
An award of $1,000 goes to the winning student journalist and an additional $1,000 goes to the publication sponsoring the winning entry. Of special importance to judges are news stories, institutional editorials, personal commentaries or columns that single out for public examination any act that results in distortion or pollution of the public discourse. Use of open records is deemed particularly meritorious if the result is to let the people see the people’s business being done. More details and past winners are here: Grady.uga.edu/Holland-award. Please reach out to Stephanie Moreno, firstname.lastname@example.org, with questions.
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 Sunday, July 26 through Friday, July 31, 2020, at the 25th annual Management Seminar for College News Editors (MSCNE).

“MSCNE is a transformative experience. If you pay attention to the speakers and participate fully in the activities, you will leave the program as a better person. I’ve learned so much this week that I feel as though someone raised a lid on my head and poured in knowledge until it overflowed. In addition to being educational, MSCNE is also fun. You’ll meet some great people, visit some intriguing places, and make memories to last a lifetime. Be sure to explore Athens with some new friends in your spare time!”
