As we come to the end of the academic year, I’d like to share an update on the recent activities and next steps for the Presidential Search Committee. For quick reference, here is a summary of the committee’s overarching timeline, which I describe in more detail below.

  • June: Establish key operating principles and practices.
  • During the summer: Meet regularly to review candidates. Meetings are currently scheduled for June, July, and August.
  • During the fall semester: Thoughtfully engage with the community, interview candidates, identify finalists, and ultimately proceed to final appointment and announcement of our next president by the board.
  • Each month until the search concludes: Share an update with the whole IC community.

LOTS of Clothing
Desk lamps
Trash cans
Kitchen supplies
Reusable coffee mugs
Reusable water bottles
Reusable shopping bags
Chairs
Mirrors

Assistant Professor of Journalism Anthony Adornato published a paper, Forces at the Gate: Social Media’s Influence on Editorial and Production Decisions in Local TV Newsrooms, in the Electronic News journal. The study reveals that the reliance on social media content has increased the chances that newsrooms will spread misinformation. A third of respondents indicated their stations have reported information from social media that was later found to be false or inaccurate. Despite this, policy has not caught up with practice. One of the more striking findings of this study is, of those newsrooms that have social media policies, nearly 40% said the policy does not include procedures for verifying social media content before it is included in a newscast.  Read the study here
