SJMC Professors Receive Challenge Fund Grant









Florida International University is one of twelve universities in the country to win a $35,000 Challenge Fund for Innovation in Journalism Education this year. Four FIU journalism professors proposed a project on sea-level rise in South Florida.

Juliet Pinto, Susan Jacobson, Kate MacMillin and Robert Gutsche are the SJMC professors who proposed and are now creating the South Florida: Sea Level Rise project. The goal is to give South Floridians easy access to data on sea level rise, using a website and an app created by students.
