For the fourth summer in a row, the school’s Institute for International Journalism is hosting a summer program for journalism educators from around the world.
The program is referred to simply as “SUSI” around Scripps Hall. It stands for “Study of the U.S. Institute for Journalism and Media Scholars,” a program sponsored by the U.S. State Department.
This year’s scholars are from Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Chile, Ecuador, Honduras, India, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mongolia, Mozambique, Nepal, Romania, Ukraine, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Scholars were welcomed at an opening program this past Saturday evening.
This is one of several summer activities that makes Scripps Hall a highly stimulating “ground zero” for journalism education. So, even though most of our students are off doing internships or working at summer jobs, the work we do in Athens continues, with a few slight twists.
