The Pulitzer Center welcomes the newest member of its Campus Consortium network, Elmhurst College in Elmhurst, Illinois. The partnership, the first formal relationship between the Pulitzer Center and a Chicago-area college, kicks off this fall with a series of workshops, seminars and lectures focused on new media production and evolving approaches to international journalism.
"Our partnership with Elmhurst is critical to the Pulitzer Center’s model of collaboration and our efforts to broaden the public's global horizons," said Pulitzer Center Executive Director Jon Sawyer.
Sawyer and Elmhurst College President S. Alan Ray further explain their hopes for the partnership in a joint release that details the program and the initial series of events, which includes the October 24 public forum, "Journalism in the 21st Century." Author James O'Shea, editor of the Chicago News Cooperative and former LA Times editor, joins Pulitzer Center Senior Editor Tom Hundley and Pulitzer Center New Media Strategist Maura Youngman at the forum for a conversation on crisis reporting in a digital era, and the Pulitzer Center model.
