Gaylord Journalism Students Get “Real World” Experience

OU’s newly appointed V-P of University Community, Jabar Shumate, visited Gaylord July 22nd to take part in a “planned” news conference.

In an effort to simulate a work world experience for his JMC 3663 students, Professor Ken Fischer invited Shumate to play his real life role as a campus newsmaker.  The students researched the issues and problems that the new V-P is undertaking here in Norman.  The research covered a variety of the diversity concerns facing OU and it formed the basis for the questions the students developed in their preparation.
So while the premise was a planned educational exercise, everything else was real.  Real research, real questions, real answers.
