Faith In The Heart Of The City With Katy Culver

Katy Culver March 8, 2018

How does faith inform the work of our civic, academic, and marketplace leaders? What faith-inspired lessons have our key leaders learned throughout their lives and how do they play out in the everyday demands of public engagement? Join us for our continuing Upper House series entitled, Faith in the Heart of the City.

Katy Culver is an assistant professor at the UW-Madison School of Journalism and Mass Communications and holds the James E. Burgess Chair in Journalism Ethics. She also is the director of the Center for Journalism Ethics. She joined the university in 1999 to help launch an innovative curriculum to prepare students for a changing media landscape – “preparing students for jobs that may not even exist yet.” She used her background as a police reporter to magazine editor to marketing manager to help generations of students learn journalism skills and critical thinking. As a researcher, she specializes in ethics and emerging media. In 2013 and again in 2015, she was one of the finalists in the Scripps Foundation Journalism Educators of the Year. But she is more than an educator. She and her husband have two sons and are active in the community and she tries in many ways to live out her faith as a Roman Catholic.
