Media for Social Responsibility Mini-Course and Partnership

The Media for Social Responsibility (M4SR) course has become a signature initiative in the Roy H. School of Communications. This interdisciplinary three-day mini-course is open to all Ithaca College students and highlights the responsibility of the media to provide positive content and resources in the category of social change. 

The design of the course includes a public address by a high-profile international figure, a series of intensive media case studies, and small group activity where students team up with alumni media professionals to develop and present a “pitch” for a communications campaign related to the topic.

In spring 2012, communications students from a handful of international universities were invited to participate.

The 2013 Media for Social Responsibility course will focus on media's coverage of the food crisis.
