Happy Holidays: Reflections on 2010

As 2010 winds to a close, one can’t help but reflect on the many great people and events that have marked the past year in the Diederich College of Communication.

And what an eventful year it’s been for the College!

There were the departures of Associate Dean Gary Meyer and Assistant Dean Rose Richard, the appointments of Dr. Joyce Wolburg and Dr. Erik Ugland to fill the roles of Associate Dean and Associate Dean of Graduate Studies and Research (respectively), and the arrival of our new Assistant Dean Chioma Ugochukwu.

There’s the ongoing Centennial of Journalism celebration with events such as our September kickoff party at the Milwaukee Public Museum, the student-produced Centennial Seminars program, and the launch of a new website dedicated to the past, present and future of our journalism program.

In June, our Urban Journalism Workshop celebrated its 25th anniversary (and continues to keep going strong).

We hosted numerous inspirational guest speakers, such as free press advocates Robert McChesney and John Nichols, host of the PBS NewsHour Gwen Ifill and acclaimed journalist Lisa Ling.

And of course, there were the renovations in Johnston Hall that have brought us the new elevator and the opening of the incredible JPad student lounge.

Thanks to all our readers and contributors for a great first year. Look for new posts when we resume in January. Until then, happy holidays!
