Diversity Fellows

In the Fall of 2018, the Hubbard School announced a new cohort of adjunct fellows who support diversity, equity and inclusion in our classrooms. The program has continued to add new fellows each semester since. The fellows, all professionals working in the areas of journalism and strategic communication, engage with students across a range of courses throughout each semester, offering expertise in areas such as ethics and radio production to beat reporting and advertising strategy.
