In the world of sports, there are hat tricks – athletes who accomplish the same feat three times in a single game. The Department of Media, Journalism & Film has a “hat track times two” student in graduating senior Emily Crane. During her Miami years, the journalism-anthropology double major has racked up more than half of dozen top-level feats.
Acclaimed journalist and author Wil Haygood (Miami '76) will join Miami's faculty in the spring semester of academic year 2014-2015 as the Karl and Helen Wiepking Visiting Distinguished Professor, a one-year appointment.
Jennifer Boroff is a 2008 Miami University graduate from Beachwood, Ohio. With a major in Strategic Communications, Boroff set herself up for a career in the public relations world.
There is no such thing as a typical day for Boroff as a public relations professional at a small firm in Chicago.Whether she is working angles on a red carpet or participating in conference calls and strategic meetings, Boroff is always on the move. So her only routines are in the mornings. “I always start my day by flipping back and forth between the Today show and Good Morning America,” says Boroff, an account manager at Henson Consulting. “After getting ready, I hop on the Red Line to work and scoop up an iced Zen tea from Starbucks. Then I’m ready to roll.”
Boroff has worked on numerous PR accounts throughout her five-year career. Some of her past clients at Stern Advertising, a top Cleveland-based agency, included Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Disney on Ice and Kay Jewelers. Boroff worked with Jane Seymour, the Emmy award-winning actress, to help promote Seymour’s Open Heart paintings and artwork through a national art tour.
We are united behind the goal of helping students become media-literate and critically engaged citizen-producers. We integrate the analysis of media's role in our social world and the creation of high-quality media content.
