Jane Peterson, professor and associate director of the Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication, has had her Master Journalism Educator (MJE) designation renewed by the Journalism Education Association Certification Commission.
She first earned the distinction in 1995.
An MJE designation reflects leadership in the development and enhancement of journalism education. Peterson and other MJEs are reviewed every five years.
She will be recognized April 9 at the Journalism Education Association in Seattle.
