The School of Journalism and Electronic Media has agreed to participate in a collaborative journalism project with the Congressional Medal of Honor Society. The Medal of Honor Project will be an ongoing educational initiative by students, faculty and staff who will document the stories of those whom have been awarded America’s highest military decoration. The project will be completed in conjunction with the 2014 Medal of Honor Convention, which will be held in Knoxville, Tenn.
Students, who participate in the project, will have unprecedented access to nearly all of the 80 living Medal of Honor recipients and will create portfolio-quality print, audio, and video content that will be distributed locally and nationally. Participants will also cover the 2014 Medal Honor Convention and events leading up to the convention.
The Medal of Honor Project will utilize a hybrid class-club design. The project will operate similar to other student organizations, such as our numerous student media groups, except that students serving in leadership positions will be eligible to receive course credit via an independent study supervised by the project director, Prof. Nick Geidner.
