In a world driven by media & news updates, only the most ethical & factual can make it into the medium.
But that's not all SPJ UMN is about.
SPJ is about connections, it's about meeting with professionals in the field and around the Twin Cities area and beyond. As media students in the 21st century, SPJ will help us navigate new journalistic battles & connect to as many mentors as possible.
Professional development has been a long-time cornerstone of the Society's mission. SPJ programs, the SPJ National Convention and Journalism Conference, specialized workshops, regional conferences, local chapter meetings and the Broadcasting Taishoff Seminar provide members with an opportunity to improve their professional skills and to facilitate career development.
