RMU’s Society for Collegiate Journalists chapter inducted its largest class–22 students–on Oct. 9.
RMU’s provost David Jamison addressed the inductees. He told them that all journalists must remember how important the First Amendment is; it must be supported and defended especially as the national debate about what is truth continues, the provost said.
Dean AnnMarie LeBlanc also spoke to the students. She noted that whether content is distributed through print, broadcast or online means, or if it comes through a photograph or an information graphic, responsibility to self and profession must never be ignored.
The chapter’s officers travel to Dallas later this month to participate in the annual fall gathering of the College Media Association. Congrats & welcome to all!
