Excellence in Journalism Initiative A Project of College of Fine Arts & Communication
Inspire Outstanding Journalism
Towson University journalism students have dreams of following in the footsteps of Tigers before them who have stood out in print, electronic, or broadcast journalism. That includes Bill Owens '88, who's been executive editor of 60 Minutes since 2008 and co-executive producer of 60 Minutes Sports since its debut in 2013. Bill saw the importance of celebrating great journalism and inspiring students to follow that example when he provided gifts to begin the Excellence in Journalism Initiative, which funds the Celebration of Journalism Festival at TU.
How Can You Help?
Gifts to the initiative ensure that the festival will continue into the future. By paying for travel expenses, fees, facility rental, and more, you'll provide for our students and faculty to engage with and learn from renowned journalists. Your generosity will further inform and inspire our aspiring journalists to reach even greater heights!
