Professor and Frank A. Bennack, Jr. Chair in Journalism

School of Journalism

UT Austin

I like to remind my students that education is a lifelong pursuit and journalism is one of the best vehicles for fostering continuous learning. It can introduce us to unforgettable people and mind-stretching ways of looking at and dealing with life. My goal is to help students develop the curiosity, methodology and confidence it takes to get out into the world and follow what really matters to them with gusto and at depth.
