Professor Stine Eckert joins women's leadership program; named Kopenhaver Center Fellow

Assistant Professor Stine Eckert was selected by The Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver Center for the Advancement of Women at Florida International University as one of their 2015-16 Kopenhaver Center Fellows at the program’s second annual workshop in San Francisco on August 5. 


The workshop took place during the 2015 Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) convention. Professor Eckert was one of 20 new fellows selected at the event.  


More than 2,500 media educators and executives from across the U.S. and Canada attended the AEJMC conference, and attendees took part in various panels on research and teaching methods in the fields of journalism and mass communication. 


The Kopenhaver Center Fellows were selected by way of an application process that included more than 1,000 AEJMC member institutions. The workshop focused on promoting leadership by finding one’s voice and empowering women media scholars and professionals.


Professor Stine Eckert teaches both COM 2230 (Broadcast News Writing & Digital Editing) and COM 5500 (Web Design for News Content) at Wayne State University, and some of her primary research involves gender and social media.
