There are three key components of the Institute:
Workshop Sessions — three day-long workshops for fellows will be held at the AEJMC Winter Meeting, the ASJMC winter workshop, and the AEJMC Conference. Workshops will cover a variety of administrative issues, including fundraising, budgets, developing leadership, and marketing yourself in a search.
Mentor Program — JLID matches each fellow with a JMC administrator mentor. The mentoring relationship consists of monthly contact via telephone or e-mail, and a week-long visit to the mentor’s campus for a first-hand look at administering a journalism/communication program.
Resource Networking — JLID fellows are introduced to current JMC administrators during social and programming sessions at their workshops. Mentors introduce fellows to other administrators to help the fellow begin to establish a network of resources.Print friendly
