For more than a decade, this consortium of Communication doctoral programs has sponsored a select group of Ph.D. students to spend a summer in Washington, D.C. These COMPASS Summer Fellows have a front row seat to learn about U.S. federal policymaking as they make their own contributions to the policy process through their research and writing.
On April 19 - 21, the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania celebrated the official launch of the Center for Media at Risk, a new center to study and counteract the way that practitioners of all forms of media — journalism, entertainment, film, and digital — have been harassed, silenced, and coerced by the rising tide of authoritarianism around the globe.
