News Literacy - Penn State

Working with prominent scholars at Penn State campuses across the commonwealth, I have been involved in the Penn State News Literacy Initiative from the ground up. Collectively working to implement News Literacy as an essential skill for all Penn State students, the initiative works to bring together interdisciplinary university faculty and administrators, in addition to community leaders, public media representatives, and members of Penn State's news readership program.

I lead the News Literacy Ambassador Institute, which runs once a year and aims to educate high achieving Penn State undergraduate students values foundational to news literacy, such as critical thinking, active consumption of news, and political and economic dynamics impacting the journalism industry today.
