Kajsa Dalrymple and Melissa Tully, Associate Professors in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, join the PPC in June as Summer Scholars-in-residence. Their project, “Building a Media and Policy Program to Connect Scholarship, Teaching, and Policy at the University of Iowa,” aims to develop a proposal in support of a Media and Policy program, including a mission statement, proposed faculty affiliates, suggested resources required for fostering collaborative research, and potential funding for the program. They intend to host a local forum to generate a list of community-focused issues that can be used to launch research projects in this area.
This project is supported by the PPC. For more information about the PPC Summer Scholars-in-Residence program, click here.
