Dr. Wagoner Johnson selected as one of 20 faculty members in the initial cohort of the Public Voices Fellowship program. The selection process was very competitive with more than 60 nominations from across the three Illinois universities. Read more about the Public Voices Fellowship program here.
The faculty members will attend four sessions at UIC during the 2019-20 academic year and will be paired with a journalism mentor who will provide one-on-one editing and coaching. The goal is to publish two op-ed pieces during the program.
The Public Voices Fellowship is a unique opportunity led by The OpEd Project, a national nonprofit social venture founded to increase the range of voices and quality of ideas shared publicly, and designed for tenure-system faculty. The program is part of a national initiative to help faculty amplify their expertise in ways that can contribute to public conversations about pressing issues.
Congratulations Dr. Wagoner Johnson! Looking forward to reading your op-ed pieces!
