The Koeppel Fellowship in Journalism program brings outstanding journalists to Wesleyan to teach for a semester and participate in special events. The Fellows work closely with students and explore both the core values and forms of traditional print journalism and the broad opportunities available in new media. Courses offered by Koeppel Fellows are sponsored by the university's Writing Certificate and the Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life.
