Featured Media

To use journalism students to work with refugee communities to tell their stories in videos and post them online

To provide more coverage of the city’s refugee community, journalism students from the University of Nebraska will move a class to a local community center and use multimedia storytelling to share stories. The content will then be offered to local outlets, aiming to promote both understanding in Lincoln and civic engagement among the city’s newest residents.
