New College's Journalism subcommittee meets Wed., Oct. 16

Published: Oct. 14, 2013

The journalism subcommittee that is helping to plan CU-Boulder’s proposed new College of Media, Communication and Information (CMCI) will hold its public meeting Wednesday, Oct. 16 to share initial ideas about the program’s curriculum and structure, and to solicit comments. The subcommittee’s meeting will be from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Continuing Education building, Room 140.

The journalism subcommittee is among several charged with recommending curriculum and structure for the college’s seven academic units. The CMCI will be an interdisciplinary college. In addition to journalism it will house programs in advertising and design; communication; intermedia digital art, writing and performance; media production; media studies; and information.

CU Provost Russell L. Moore appointed an implementation committee earlier this year, which established subcommittees that will explore how academic units and curriculum should be organized and how the college would be governed and financed. Other committees will draft a diversity plan, draw up bylaws and faculty policies and procedures, design the college budget and make recommendations about student issues, including advising and assessment. CU-Boulder is scheduled to make a complete proposal for the college to the university Board of Regents next spring.
