A CALL TO FACULTY ... Chronicle of Scholarly Activity 2011

Miami editor talks media ethics in lecture BUIES CREEK - Hailing from Florida - which he calls the “Candyland of American journalism” and a freak show when it comes to politics - Manny Garcia has covered some of the nation’s biggest stories and most talked-about elections. He shared his experiences and offered insight to a lecture hall packed with journalism and political science students Thursday at Campbell University’s annual Lecture Symposium. Garcia, executive editor and general manager El Nuevo Herald and former investigative reporter for Pulitzer Prize-winning projects at the

Miami Herald, spoke on “Ethical Political Coverage in an Era of Instant News” and shared his thoughts on current events such as the media’s handling of the Trayvon Martin murder case. His advice for the students - you don’t have to be part of a big newsroom to produce quality journalism. Knowledge, he said, is the best weapon a journalist can have. “Knowledge is power,” Garcia said, “especially when covering politics.”

NEW: PAUL GREEN FEST IN HARNETT APRIl 20-21 The Paul Green Foundation will host a festival to highlight the life and achievements of Harnett County’s own Paul Green on the campus of Campbell University and in the neighboring towns on April 20-21. Festival-goers can learn about the local playwright and the things he believed in and fought for tirelessly. As Green once said, “The greatest sin society can commit is to cause a man to miss his own life.” Green grew up in Harnett County deeply convicted, he once said, by the immoralities of racial discrimination, military conflict and capital punishment. He often wrote of these things in his novels and dramas and began a new form of theater called the “symphonic drama.” Theater companies usually present these dramas on the sites depicted in the action; such is the case in one of Green’s most famous plays, “The Lost Colony.” Learn more at

A Challenge to Serve To celebrate Campbell University’s 125th anniversary with a challenge to Campbell faculty, staff, alumni and students to complete 125,000 collective hours of service. The service initiative is the fruit of an institution whose foundation was service to others. Campbell University began as a beacon of education in Harnett County and remains so as it continues to excel in the areas of faith, learning and service. We embark upon this 125,000 hour challenge not to brag but because it is who we are. The CU community represents thousands of hours of time spent with Sunday School classes, small groups, civic organizations, non-profit agencies, friends and family serving our neighbors. We want to celebrate this. We take on this challenge of completing these hours because we recognize the needs around us and our calling to serve in order to bring healing to the hurting and bring freedom to the oppressed. We take on this challenge because there are still persons living in poverty, hungry children, oppressed people groups and injustice in the world. Upon serving one’s community, the volunteer should submit his or her hours to the online record of service located the anniversary web page and the Campus Ministry web page.
