Hubbard 100 Years

Hubbard 100 Years

Celebrating 100 Years

For 100 years, journalism, strategic and mass communication education at the University of Minnesota has prepared students for career success. You can’t read the stories, profiles and memories throughout this site without feeling a sense of pride for where we were a century ago and how we’ve developed as a School. From the dedicated leadership of our first director, Ralph Casey, and the expansive and brilliant faculty hires to the growth and innovation of our programs and the steadfast support of our community, the School has advanced as a leader over the last 100 years. Because the stories below only cover a small percentage of what makes up our history, we plan to share even more memories throughout the year, so watch your inboxes, our social media channels, the next Reporter issue and join us for several centennial events. We also want to hear your stories. Share them with us

As we reflect on our 100th year, we hope that you continue to be #UMNProud to see the breadth and depth of the Hubbard School’s activities. We also hope to see more of your faces, either in person or virtually, in 2022 as we join together to celebrate all we have accomplished, as well as dream of what the next 100 years may bring.
