Welcome to the Fall 2021 Semester: An AJO Newsletter

We have a 'no-asshole rule' in the American Journalism Online Master's Program. That means that every instructor, every support staff, and every person that AJO works with or oversees must treat others with kindness and respect. I don't have a lot of rules in life, but this is one that I am adamant about. On our own, we may not be able to change the world, but we can certainly create a supportive, nurturing educational and work environment, one that makes all of us strive to be better human beings.
