"Just Deux It" by PWP instructor Pamela Gerhardt is featured on the front page of the July 9, 2006, Washington Post travel section.
In the spirit of collaboration, and taking advantage of her familial connection to the Director of Chile's School of Journalism, Robin M. Earnest, J.D., LL.M., has organized a student visit to UMD this fall. Serap Deniz Rada, the Director of UMD's School of Journalism, has graciously agreed to host a group of journalism students visiting from Chile's Universidad del Desarrollo, in late September. The visit is part of a special internship in which students travel to the United States to view journalism schools and news organizations here. As a result of this year's collaboration, we are hopeful that a visit to UMD might become a more permanent part of that annual internship program.
