The CEREO Newsroom is a new collaboration seeking to support teamwork between CEREO- affiliated graduate students and Murrow College undergraduates to create multimedia packages (blog and social media posts, written articles, and video profiles or news pieces). These projects will profile the activities and accomplishments of current research or produce investigative journalism pieces focused on a significant environmental issue.
Description: CEREO seeks proposals by graduate students who would like to have their own research profiled or highlighted in investigative journalism news pieces similar to those found on the Murrow Backpack Journalism website. The CEREO Newsroom will support 4-6 multimedia projects in 2015 based on project feasibility, potential to catalyze future collaborations, and potential to increase CEREO visibility. This is an excellent opportunity for graduate students to communicate their research to broad audiences and gain training in research communication and video production.
Eligibility: Enrolled CEREO-affiliated WSU graduate students who are conducting research related to environmental problems. If you have questions about your eligibility, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Students can become a CEREO affiliate simply by completing the CEREO affiliate web form.
An informational meeting about the CEREO Newsroom and this call for proposals will be held on January 21, 2015 at 4pm in Goertzen Communication Addition 21. Interested students or faculty at satellite campuses can attend by phone (509-335-4700, meeting ID#1142). Attending the informational meeting is not required in order to submit a proposal, but is encouraged.
The deadline for proposals is Jan 31, 2015. For more information and submission details, please read the CEREO Newsroom Call for Project Proposals
