Yan Shan, College of Liberal Arts, Journalism Department


In this project, I analyze what diversity and inclusion looks like in Cal Poly’s journalism department and how it compares to other universities and other programs. I spoke with several students about their experience in the department and their views on the efforts made to improve diversity. I also break down the demographics and share insight into goals the department has for improvements in staff and curriculum.
