ProPublica logoProPublica, "a nonprofit newsroom that investigates abuses of power," according to its website, invites budding journalists of color to apply for its Emerging Reporters Program, which "provides a $9,000 stipend, along with mentoring and trips to the National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting conference and our New York office, for five students each year who work or want to work at college journalism outlets: newspapers, websites, radio stations or TV stations." Thanks to Dr. Heather Harris, professor of communication at Stevenson University, for the LinkedIn tip!

Students who will be juniors or seniors this academic year are eligible to apply, and African Americans, Latinos and other people of color are especially encouraged. Participants must be full-time students during the 2019-20 school year. Applicants must also demonstrate financial need. Interested? Find out more information here.

3. Everybody Writes by Ann Handley
             

Business Communication professor and novelist Stephanie Verni captivated her audience on Thursday, Nov. 2, as she presented a workshop on writing and self-publishing in the Claire Moore Room in Garrison Hall at Stevenson University as part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The event was hosted by the SU Library and '47 House, the communication club. Speaking to over 30 guests, and providing them with coffee and donuts, Professor Verni walked her eager audience through the process of starting a novel and getting it ready for publication. In one of the photos above, Verni (in black) is pictured with librarian Bria Sinnott, who shares an interest in #NaNoWriMo. Congratulations to Professor Verni and all the audience participants!

Students in Stevenson's Event Planning class, under the direction of communication adjunct faculty member Chris Daley, were on hand on Friday, Oct. 26, to help with "Pumpkins on the Green," the Irvine Nature Center's annual charity fundraiser event. Posted one student, senior Molly Myers, about her experience: "It was an honor to work with Irvine Nature Center for their 10th annual Pumpkins on the Green event this year. This is an event that my event planning class helped with and it was honestly a rewarding experience. Seeing how the inner workings of an event of this size played out allowed me to learn more than I was expecting!"

Congratulations to the class for their hard work and contribution!

It was an exciting night for students and faculty members Stephanie Verni and Chip Rouse as they collaborated in a workshop called "Creating your online brand." The Business Communication faculty members demonstrated how to create and fill a professional online portfolio using WordPress, how to use LinkedIn like the pros do, and how to manage social media. The "sold out" workshop was one definitely worth repeating! In the photo above, Professor Verni walks the students through the creation of an online portfolio.
