The University of Southern Indiana's student chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists is open to students who are supportive of free speech and a free press. We meet twice a month for professional development, to plan special events that educate the university community about the important role of journalists, and to provide a social connection for students.
Students who want to join our chapter will also join the national chapter, which gives members access to exclusive online training resources, discounted conference registration fees, and a subscription to Quill magazine. Annual student membership dues are $37.50.
