Newhouse School launches ‘Newhouse in New York’ satellite campus program
By Wendy S. LoughlinApril 29, 2014
Drawing on the strength of its vast network of accomplished alumni in the communications industry, the Newhouse School has established a satellite campus program in New York City.
“Newhouse in New York” will engage students from all Newhouse majors in professional internships, specialized course work and regular interactions with industry leaders. The inaugural class of students will begin in Fall 2014.
Accomplished magazine editor and Newhouse alumna Cheryl Brody Franklin ’04 will serve as director. Franklin has worked and written for People, Time Out New York, Glamour and, most recently, InStyle, where she was a senior editor. Franklin resigned from her post at InStyle.com to take the position with Newhouse.
“I learned so much about the industry when I studied at Syracuse University, and I’ve always welcomed the chance to pay it forward,” Franklin says. “I’ve been lucky enough to mentor students over the years and help plan the annual William Glavin magazine benchmark trip to New York City, but this new position allows me to give back in an entirely new way. I want to help students launch their careers, and I’m honored to be able to help shape this program from the ground up.”
Students in the program will spend a semester in New York, interning two-to-three days a week and taking courses at Syracuse University’s Fisher Center in midtown Manhattan. Internships will be designed to match each student’s interests and abilities and will span a range of disciplines. Students will also be able to take a variety of online courses offered by SU’s College of Arts and Sciences.
Franklin will work with SU faculty to inform curricula, hire instructors and connect students with internships.
A similar satellite campus program, the Syracuse University Los Angeles Semester, was established in 2009.
