UC Association of Black Journalists

This student chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists offers opportunities for all students to learn, network and find new avenues to let their voices be heard. Each quarter, group leadership decides on a slate of programs that bring media professionals to campus and send members into the community to engage fledgling high-school journalists. Members regularly attend national conferences and regional career fairs. Social activities round out the group's active calendar.
