J-Schools as leaders

Glad to see SJMC and our Center for Journalism Ethics as part of this group of “major players” helping journalism move forward in uncertain times.

But these are days of uncertainty for journalism schools, as well. Colorado is facing a decertification and massive restructuring. Other schools, including ours, struggle for resources to keep moving forward.

Investments in journalism schools and centers are investments in society. Our founder, Willard Bleyer, once said the future of our democracy depends on the character of our newspapers. It depends on the strength of our schools and centers, as well.
