Student-alumni connections

The Department of Journalism and Public Relations launched the Jim Brown Interview Series in October 2021 in honor and appreciation of Brown, who served as executive associate dean of journalism at IUPUI for 28 years.

The series features current students interviewing successful alumni. The goal of the series is to help students connect with and learn from alumni, and to give the interviewer an additional highlight to their resume or reel.

Do you want to be an interviewer or interviewee for this series? Contact Emily Turnier, director of outreach and career services.
