Anne Garrels, NPR Senior Foreign Correspondent | Robison Lecturer, October 20, 2010
The Robison Endowed Lectureship is designed to provide Bradley University with access to distinguished working news professionals and educators. These professionals will present a more vivid view of print and broadcast news through their experiences and contributions to the field. In order to benefit the students and community, the income from the Robison Endowment Lectureship will provide funding for the following purposes:
- Series of Master Classes
- Classroom Lectures
- Community presentations
- Workshops for professionals
The presenters for these varied programs will be selected from news professionals and educators nationally known. The participants will be women and men who have achieved success in the journalism field. The lectureship was endowed by and named in memory of Miss Mary Leslie Robison, Assistant Professor of English at Bradley University from 1957-1969.
This fall's Robison Lecturer is Dr. Todd Gitlin, Professor of Journalism and Sociology, and Chair of the Ph.D. program in Communication at Columbia University. His lecture, entitled "A Glut of Crises: Journalism and the Prospects for Democracy" will be presented Wednesday, October 21 at 8pm in the Neumiller Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.
