Building Teaching Facilities for Graphics, Editing, and Newswriting.
Sullivan, Paul W.
With the rapidly increasing demand for journalism education over the past several years, the need for new teaching facilities for graphics, editing, and newswriting has become a challenge many journalism educators have had to face. In 1973 the Eli Lilly Foundation awarded the University of Evansville a grant to draw the disciplines of journalism, broadcasting, and speech into a unit to be called the Center for the Study of Communications. The purpose of the program is to graduate professionals who are competent to work immediately in the mass media. Approximately $14,000 was made available to provide facilities and develop a suitable program to fit the needs of the students. The newsroom was designed to be used for both the print and broadcast programs; plans for other facilities which will serve several functions are not yet complete. While these plans have limited use at a major university, they are workable and economical for smaller institutions. The planning recognizes that the problems of the new technology can be faced within a budget by providing facilities for immediate use with the capacity for future growth. (The document contains a budget for equipping a newsroom and graphics laboratory and provides diagrams of these facilities.) (RB)
