Community Partnerships: Writing in the Real World

Community Partnerships: Writing in the Real World

Several downtown businesses and students in a journalism course taught by communication professor Kim Pavlick, Ph.D., have benefited from a project partnership with the Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce. Students interviewed and wrote feature articles about businesses, from a new ramen shop to Electric City Escape, for the Chamber website, giving businesses more press and visibility and the students writing and real-world interviewing experience.

“You can’t teach journalism in a bubble,” Dr. Pavlick said.

The newswriting project is not one that people often think of as a “service” experience, but, Community-Based Learning can involve both direct service with social service agencies and special projects that build capacity at a nonprofit, raise awareness or otherwise address a community need or issue.
