Panel to Examine ‘Confidence in Journalism’ Sept. 24

Author: Arts and Letters

Gallivan Program in Journalism

“Confidence in Journalism: Regaining Public Trust” will be the subject of a public forum Monday (Sept. 24) at the University of Notre Dame. It will begin at 3p.m. in Rooms 100-104 in McKenna Hall and is free and open to the public.

Hosted by the University’s John W. Gallivan Program in Journalism, Ethics and Democracy, the forum will feature a panel of journalists from across the country, including members of the Gallivan Program advisory committee, which consists of Notre Dame alumni who work in the media. They will discuss declining confidence in the news media.

The Gallivan Program was established in 1997 through a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and continued with an endowment made by the family of Notre Dame alumnus John W. Gallivan. The Gallivan Program is an undergraduate concentration for Notre Dame students interested in pursuing careers in print and broadcast journalism. The program sponsors classes, internships, publications and campus visits of prominent journalists.
