Sponsored by the Poynter Fellowship in Journalism. The Poynter Fellowship plays a unique role in the educational life of Yale University. Nelson Poynter (Yale, M.A. 1927) established the program to enable Yale to bring to its campus distinguished reporters, editors and others who have made important contributions to the media. By sponsoring symposia and conferences on issues of broad public concern and by bringing to the university some of the most outstanding journalists from the United States and abroad, the Poynter Fellowship has helped Yale students and faculty gain special insight into the media and its role in contemporary culture.
