ALUMNI UPDATES Meet our advisory board members and find out what some of our alumni are doing.


CHAIR'S MESSAGE Greetings and welcome to the Fall 2021 Department of Journalism, Public Relations & New Media newsletter. We are excited to debut “Castellaw Connect,” the new format of our alumni newsletter. In this inaugural issue, we spotlight the accomplishments of faculty, alumni and students. We also share reaccreditation, facilitates and fundraising updates. We’ve been busy, and we have lots of exciting news to share! In the fall, Baylor JPR&NM completed a site visit for reaccreditation by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications (ACEJMC). The reaccreditation process began with a rigorous self-examination by faculty and staff of nine standards that include curriculum, outcomes assessment, diversity, facilities, oversight and several other areas. Following the self study, a team of educators and professionals visited our department in October to evaluate our program. .

The team talked to us, our current s t u d e n t s , a l u m n i , a d m i n i s t r a to r s , and our colleagues in other departments to further assess our p r o g r a m . I a m e x c i t e d t o r e p o r t th a t we have been recommended for reaccreditation. This is an outstanding accomplishment for our department, since there are only 117 schools accredited by ACEJMC in the country; 114 are fully accredited, and three three are on provisional status. W e a r e f o r t u n a t e t o h a v e d e d ic a te d f a c u l t y , s u p p o r t i v e a d m i n i s t r a to r s , o u t s t a n d i n g s t a f f , g r e a t s t u d e n ts , a l o w t e a c h e r - s t u d e n t r a t i o , e x c e lle n t retention and job/graduate school placement rates, and generous scholarship funds. Continued on page 18 An ad-hoc beautification committee that included Curtis Callaway, Cassy Burleson, Kevin Tankersley, Lanisa Tovar, Dennisse Concepcion, Elizabeth Bates and myself conceptualized posters for the hallways and shared Castellaw’s second floor.

DEVELOPMENT UPDATES

Thanks to generous donations of friends of JPR&NM and the hard work of our department’s development officer Kristyn Miller, the increased level of alumni engagement has resulted in a growth in donations. In 2019, a little more than $50,000 was raised, made up of 98 gifts from 83 donors. In 2020, that number nearly doubled to a little under $100,000, and funds were from 119 gifts and 102 donors. And in 2021, the department raised more than half a million dollars--$587,534.98 to be exact.

Earlier this year, JPR&NM was blessed to fund the Moody-Ramirez Belden Endowed Scholarship for Diversity. This scholarship is a collaborative effort between Tom Belden and Janice Miller, Ella Prichard and Mia MoodyRamirez that they began discussing with Professor Bob Darden in the fall of 2020. They wanted to create a scholarship for journalism students similar to Baylor’s Trailblazer Scholars Program, which was designed to recognize the importance of fostering diversity and mutual respect at Baylor University. The scholarship will be awarded to a student who is a member of NABJ. To give to Baylor Journalism, click this link. To select a specific fund, choose the drop-down window.You may also email Kristyn_Miller@baylor.edu

Other major gifts include a $50,000 scholarship endowed by a retired Air Force Colonel whose career as a public information officer for the military was shaped by her time as a journalism student. She said Dr. Sara Stone was so influential in her life that she dedicated the scholarship in her honor. Also worth mentioning, we launched the Dr. Doug Ferdon Scholarship campaign last spring, raising more than $3,500 in his honor so far. Donors also helped us fund the Sara Stone scholarship in record time last December (2020). JPRNM has received the following scholarship pledges since November: • Diana Austin ESF for Journalism – $77,500 • Steve Toon ESF in Journalism – $50,000 • Edwards Family ESF – $50,000 • Edwards Family Internship ESF (used for JPRNM internship stipends) – $50,000. Financial aid is a critical part of most students' education. Currently, about 70 percent of Baylor students are on financial assistance or scholarship aid. Our department offers nearly $200,000 in annual scholarship funds to students. An additional $40,000 is set aside for incoming freshman and transferring journalism majors. The amount offered in scholarships is more than any other department in the College of Arts & Sciences. Current journalism majors must submit applications with all required material by March 18. Incoming freshman and transfer students have until March 6. For more information, contact Moody-Ramirez or click this link.

Student Media Baylor Student Media, under Bruce Gietzen’s direction, earned 40 national awards in the past two months from collegiate and professional organizations. The Baylor Lariat was a finalist for a prestigious Editor & Publisher’s EPPY Award for best campus website, in good company with the eventual winner, Syracuse University’s Newhouse Communication Center. Baylor students were named an Associated Collegiate Press Pacemaker finalist. The Lariat also earned first place in editorial cartoon and first place in special section (“Baylor Backstory”) from the College Media Association. Lariat TV News earned a finalist Pacemaker recognition from ACP. Other notable awards include first place Pinnacle in sports broadcast from the College Media Association; first place video news package and video newscast in CMA’s film and audio festival; first place Best of Show for broadcast news story and broadcast news program from the Association Collegiate Press; and first place feature news reporting from College Broadcasters Inc. The Roundup yearbook also has received numerous awards for design.

Editor-In-Chief

Serving as editor-in-chief is no simple feat. It involves extreme attention to detail, countless hours of brainstorming, a team player attitude, and a talent of delegation and balance. Ava Dunwoody, a Baylor junior, is a bit different from your typical Lariat staff member. Her plan is to become a high school teacher post-graduation. Find out how she juggles it all in this feature titled "Baylor’s editor-in-chief takes on difficult job."

CHAIR'S MESSAGE Continued from page 5 Updating our facilities continues to be a challenge. We have been able to make some changes to give Castellaw a more modern look. Since 2018, we have converted three classrooms into collaborative learning environments. Our classrooms feature new seating, moveable tables, additional monitors, and whiteboards that are more conducive to collaborative work and discussion. We added sofas, rugs and tables to two outer hallways on the second floor to make them common spaces where students can relax and/or study. This summer, we updated classroom seating to replace outdated desks with modern ergonomic chairs that offer students comfort and better back support. Tables were added to each classroom to replace outdated desks and offer collaborative learning spaces. Whiteboards, monitors and flatscreen televisions also were added to classrooms. In response to the needs created by the COVID-19 pandemic, cameras were added to several classrooms to allow the synchronous recording of lectures.

We also highlighted the work of students, alumni and faculty. A faculty scholarship wall features books written by faculty members, and numerous exhibits spotlight the photography of faculty members, alumni and students. We also have been updating our bulletin boards frequently to better highlight upcoming events, scholarships and trends in diversity. On the horizon, we’re updating our breakroom/mailroom, automating second-floor toilets, updating the carpet in our largest classroom and adding cabinets to our photo equipment check-out room. We’ll continue to make improvements and renovations as our budget allows. Three More Years Even more great news: I was given the thumbs up from faculty members to serve three more years as chair of JPR&NM. I look forward to taking the department to greater heights. In this episode of the KWBU Central Texas Leadership series, Nan Holmes and I discuss leadership: tinyurl.com/y2cgzkz4.. Thank you for your continued support. I wish you all good health, success and many blessings in 2022! —Mia Moody-Ramirez, Ph.D.
