The P.I. Reed School of Journalism announces the 6th Annual Golden Quill Teaching Awards. The purpose of the awards is to reward outstanding teaching, mentoring, and advising in the School. The awards are based solely on student nominations. This is YOUR chance to recognize a teacher who has had a positive impact on your education in the School. Two awards will be given each year:
one award for full-time faculty and/or visiting professors, and
one award for instructors who have taught a three-credit hour class for at least three semesters.
Thanks to your votes, last year’s winners were now-retired Professor Ivan Pinnell (faculty award) and Rick Bebout (instructor award)! Because they won in 2013, they are not eligible for this year’s awards. Therefore, their names are not listed on the nomination forms.
Please take the time to nominate an outstanding professor and instructor. You may only vote for each award once, and you will need to log in with your MIX account information. Make sure you hit the submit button at the end of the form.
Voting will run from Monday, Feb. 17, through Friday, Feb. 28, but take the time to vote today! Winners will be announced at the Spring Awards Ceremony and on the SOJ Web site. To vote, visit: http://journalism.wvu.edu/goldenquill
Graduation season will be here before you know it, and the School of Journalism is already making plans! But first, we need you to take action! You will need to RSVP for the ceremony (if you plan to attend) and submit an official application for graduation (if applicable). See below for specific instructions.
RSVPing for the COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY
The School of Journalism will host its annual May Commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 10 at 9:30 am at the Creative Arts Center. The school invites all May 2014 graduates to attend the ceremony. As a courtesy, the school also invites December 2013 and prospective August 2014 graduates to participate.
If you plan to attend the ceremony, you MUST RSVP by Feb. 14, 2014. The ceremony will be a ticketed event again this year, and ticket availability per graduate (e.g., 4-6) will be based on the number of responses to the online RSVP. The RSVP form and additional information are online at http://journalism.wvu.edu/about/featured-events/may-commencement-2014.
A separate ticket claim process will be announced later this spring. Only those graduates who RSVP to the ceremony will receive the link to the ticketing website.

On the occasion of Black History Month, the Cecilia Rollins Brown Bag Film and Discussion Series will host a double feature on Tuesday, Feb. 4 beginning at 5:30 p.m. and Thursday, Feb. 6 beginning at 11:30 a.m. in the Mountainlair Gluck Theater.
“Sankofa” will be shown Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. and on Thursday at 11:30 a.m. This 1993 film by Haile Gerima bends concepts of time and space in order to take the audience through the terrible ordeal that was the Maafa, the African Holocaust. In the film, a contemporary African-American woman, in Africa for a photo-shoot, travels back in time and experiences slavery. Haile Gerima’s poetic and precisely detailed film takes its audience into its heroine’s life and mind as her moral sense is challenged and changed. Although the majority of his film takes place in the past, Gerima passionately believes that the importance of the film is the direction it can provide for both the present and the future.
“Hidden Colors” will be shown Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. and Thursday at 1:30 p.m. This film is about the history of African cultural influence in the Americas, Asia, and Europe and documents the often untold history of Africans all over the world, from the ancient empires of Egypt and West Africa, to the Moor influence in medieval Europe, and discusses some of the reasons the contributions of African and aboriginal people have been left out of the pages of history.
This program is sponsored by the WVU Office of Multicultural Programs and the Office of International Student Affairs and Global Services and will be presented by Kweku Nicco Hamby and the executive officers of the WVU Black Student Union. These events are free and open to the public. Pizza will be served. For more information, call the Office of Multicultural Programs at (304) 293-0890 or visit http://studentlife.wvu.edu/office_of_multicultural_programs/upcoming_programs.
