SJMC faculty win grant for sea level rise project

Four professors joined forces in the hopes of innovating journalism and civic engagement to address the rising concern about sea level rise in South Florida, and they just received the funds to do so over the next academic year.

School of Journalism and Mass Communication professors Robert Gutsche, Susan Jacobson, Kate MacMillin and Juliet Pinto won a $35,000 grant from the Online News Association Challenge Fund to test their proposed project titled, “Sea level rise in South Florida: How are waters affecting you?”
