We recently unveiled a major redesign of the Grady College website, improving navigation and streamlining the descriptions of our majors and programs in a more intuitive and visually appealing way. The new site also shares the stories of our students through their experiential learning opportunities, our faculty and their impactful research and our alumni successes in the industries and communities they serve.
We are grateful to our website redesign partner, Marketwake, a digital marketing agency in Atlanta owned by Brooke Beach MacLean (ABJ ’11), who worked together with a Grady College team of faculty and staff in communications, IT, graphic design, website development and visual design.
Advanced photojournalism students hone skills at Georgia National Fair
Earlier this fall, eighteen students in the Advanced Photojournalism class traveled to Perry, Georgia, to work on their storytelling skills and make pictures at the Georgia National Fair.
The students spent from sun-up to nearly midnight capturing images and telling visual stories from the livestock competitions, rides, food, performances and games. Every few hours they checked in with their professional mentors, including Sofia Gratas (AB '20) and Kayla Renie (AB '18), to receive feedback on the pictures they had made.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution published a galleryof the work.
Crisis Communication Think Tank launches international hub in Europe
Our Crisis Communication Think Tank has announced an expansion into Europe – significantly enhancing the reach of UGA’s distinctive approach to crisis communication.
A total of 23 new members across 10 countries will join the Think Tank to discuss and share insights about crisis management strategies and readiness approaches. The expansion will enhance the CCTT’s mission to connect scholars and practitioners of crisis communications and introduce a global perspective on leading issues in the space.
Twelve organizations are represented among the CCTT’s international practitioner members covering a wide array of industries. The distinct experiences and mindsets of each practitioner’s perspective is highly valuable in understanding the crisis landscape.
