The News Media: Rediscovering its Voice
Ash-har Quraishi, reporter for NBC 5 Chicago, former reporter for Al Jazeera America, and Islamabad Bureau Chief for CNN.  

In this era of misinformation, uncertainty and turmoil, American journalism is finding itself in the midst of a renaissance. Quraishi will discuss how journalists are rediscovering their voices and rededicating efforts to find truth and deliver it to audiences who are seeking knowledge they can trust. 

Fall Conference Sessions - 2017
We are offering numerous options, taught by experts in the field to help yearbook, newspaper and media advisers and their students sharpen their proficiency in selected areas of interest and skill. These are preliminary.  Please check back often to see additional sessions and expanded descriptions of sessions.




STUDENTS are on their own but you have lots of great choices. There is a food court in the basement of the Illini Union and there are plenty of options available in Campustown on Daniel Street or Green Street just west of the Illini Union.

The ADVISERS LUNCHEON is in Illini Room A. There is no charge for the meal but advance registration is required. However, we do have a few extra spaces available. Please check with Lynn Holley.
