NEW ORLEANS — The Society of Professional Journalists is pleased to honor Ohio University SPJ for its commitment to SPJ’s mission and the profession of journalism.

Ohio University has been named the 2016 Outstanding Campus Chapter thanks to its dedication to offering members educational opportunities. Each year, the chapter targets new members, typically first-year students, at the student involvement fair and a separate introductory pizza social.

The chapter also hosted an event about national SPJ membership followed by multiple diversity, FOI and ethics events to get students involved in SPJ’s mission. Throughout the year the chapter hosted 21 events in addition to encouraging chapter members to attend other journalism-related campus events.

Ohio University SPJ also hosts an annual “Grammar Smackdown,” volunteering events, resume critiques and a reporting 101 workshop.

The chapter was honored today at the Student Union during the Excellence in Journalism 2016 conference in New Orleans.

SPJ promotes the free flow of information vital to informing citizens; works to inspire and educate the next generation of journalists; and fights to protect First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and press. Support excellent journalism and fight for your right to know. Become a member, give to the Legal Defense Fund, or give to the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation.
