Pop-Up Newsroom

Overview

The Pop-Up Newsroom brings together students from all around the world to collaborate on reporting at the local level on issues of global significance. First year Journalism students participate in the Pop-Up Newsroom, which in Fall 2015 focused on the refugee crisis, as one of their news days, and Second year Journalism students in the Journalist Activism will expand on that with participation in the women’s day Pop-Up Newsroom in March 2016.
