We are all here to listen and learn

The William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications values freedom, diversity and inclusion.

The School is committed to ensuring that all students, faculty and staff are respected, valued and protected. In order for us to uphold these ideals, we rely on students, faculty, staff and alumni to let us know whether we fall short.

In response to recent events at KU and around the country involving the issues of racism, respect and responsibility, we want to ensure that we hear our students’ voices and address their concerns. That is why the J-School has created a Journalism Student Leadership Board, which launched this semester. Any student admitted to the J-School as a major or minor was eligible to apply. 

The board meets monthly with the dean and/or associate deans to help advise and address issues facing the school and the university. 

We want to assure our students that the J-School faculty and staff are always open and available to every student. We value your feedback, your experiences and your insight.
