EWA Announces Plans for In-Person Higher Education Seminar

The Education Writers Association will hold its annual Higher Education Seminar October 22-23 in Washington, D.C.

Centered on the theme of “This Critical Moment,” the event will offer journalists training on issues ranging from the ongoing health challenges confronting colleges, the changing finances of higher education, and the ongoing debate over what educators should be teaching about racism. 

In sessions running all day Friday, Oct. 22, and the morning of Saturday, Oct. 23, EWA will offer data and journalism skills training. And we will gather important experts, policy makers, higher education leaders, researchers, students and veteran journalists to provide attendees with background, context, resources and story ideas.
