LMU Project Citizen

Project Citizen is the brainchild of Carol Costello, who is special advisor and ambassador at LMU and teaches in BCLA's Journalism Department.  Costello's collaboration with Amy Reynolds, dean of the College of Communication and Information at Kent State University in Ohio, brings students from different parts of the country together in journalistic projects and personal conversations. LMU's student media Director Tom Nelson and communication studies Professor Chris Finlay have joined Carol as strategic advisors and partners in guiding the project, which, thanks to private donors, will continue to expand its offerings and educate more students.
