New Media and Enduring Values

The Missouri School of Journalism and the Committee of Concerned Journalists will commemorate their alliance at an upcoming symposium at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The theme of the event - the 2006 Curtis B. Hurley Symposium - will be "New Media, Enduring Values." It will be held from 9-11 a.m., Tuesday, Oct. 17, with a continental breakfast served at 8:30 a.m.

The new partners - the world's first journalism school and a coalition of more than 9,000 journalists worldwide - will announce projects that exhibit the kind of work their partnership makes possible. All are designed to point toward promising ways in which journalism's most important values can be translated, and made even more effective, in the digital world.

"All these projects are aimed at answering the difficult question on so many minds today: How do we ensure that those principles that make journalism indispensable will survive and even thrive in the digital world?" said Geneva Overholser, who holds the Hurley chair at the School.
