Pulitzer Center Update March 6, 2009

Ann Peters and Janeen Heath at IMPACT Conference March 5-8


This past weekend college student leaders from around the country convened for the Impact Conference at the University of Maryland, University College. Students attended various workshops and forums, including one organized by the Bonner Foundation and involving the Pulitzer Center. We shared our reporting resources and brainstormed with students on how they could educate themselves and their peers on global issues. Janeen Heath and Ann Peters also spoke with some 200 Bonner Foundation student leaders later that evening. We asked students to share why they think it's important to be internationally informed and how it influences their work in their communities.
