August 8th, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

On the heels of a looming court battle over ballot language concerning a proposed ballot initiative designed to reform affirmative action, the Columbian Missourian is reporting that the University of Missouri-Columbia has decided to open a controversial program aimed at minorities to all students. Due to a successful lawsuit, similar programs at other campuses across the country have opened their programs as well.

The program, named the Missouri Urban Journalism Workshop, was created to help aspiring journalism students with reporting, writing, editing, graphics, photography, production and basic communication skills.
