A note from the Mayborn Board of Advisors:
As part of the Celebration of 75 Years of Journalism at UNT, the Mayborn Board Education Committee bolstered Mayborn Mentor events. The Education Committee was founded to help make the Mayborn School of Journalism the go-to Journalism school in the state of Texas.
Through maintaining a tight connection with local and regional industry professionals and alumni, the Mayborn Mentor events provide students a pipeline from college to the workforce. These speakers and panels are meant to be interactive, career-focused opportunities that connect current students directly to successful Alumni and corporations in the field.
One of the great benefits of being a student at the Mayborn School is ready access to highly seasoned professionals working in virtually all areas of journalism and mass communication - most of whom are our very own alumni.
We schedule regular events featuring panels of mentors who share their lessons and experiences, and then meet informally with students to form valuable mentor networks.
The Mayborn Mentor events will become a pillar of our real-world education as Mayborn looks to the next 75 years.
-Theresa Kushner and Trent Walters; founding co-leads of the Mayborn Education Committee
