National Journalism Advisory Board
CCJ’s National Journalism Advisory Board is made up of leading journalists, editors, publishers and educators from across the country. They advise CCJ to ensure that we’re helping students develop the skills and networks needed to produce quality work and succeed in the ever-evolving media landscape.
And unlike many other programs, our students actually get quality face-time with our Board, as when advisors conduct mock job interviews, provide feedback on student work and mentor students throughout their time at CCJ and beyond. Advisors not only help our students make connections, find quality internships and fellowships, and land their dream jobs; they help them make the most of their talents and developed skills to become leading voices and changemakers in an industry that needs fresh, innovative and bright minds.
