University of Missouri School of Journalism Associate Professor Amanda Hinnant was recently named the recipient of the Outstanding Woman in Journalism and Mass Communication Education award from the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC).
Given by the Commission on the Status of Woman (CSW) and AEJMC, this award recognizes a woman who has represented fellow women in the academy through personal excellence and high standards in journalism education. The award is given for exceptional merit, not on an annual basis.
“I am honored and grateful to be recognized by CSW,” Hinnant said. “This field has an abundance of women who are dedicated to journalism and mass communication education, and I am lucky to call them colleagues. I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge our tremendously talented students who have challenged and inspired me over the past 15 years.”
