The Daily Tar Heel’s mission is twofold. We first serve as a resource for readers, producing in-depth, relevant and visually appealing content.
We also make it our mission to be the best training ground for aspiring journalists by providing them with relevant skills and pushing them to fulfill their potential.
By developing a system for long-term growth, creating an online mentality throughout the newsroom and improving staff training and retention, I plan to set the pace for moving forward with excitement, transparency and a dedication to the community we serve.
- Inspire all staff to reach their full potential as journalists, and then push them to take a step further. An exciting, challenging and collaborative newsroom will inspire staff to work together for the betterment of themselves and readers.
- Decision making will be a conversation. Challenge staff and myself to always think of how to improve, and always be open to new suggestions. If an idea works, keep it. If not, toss it, but never be afraid to try something new.
To present stories in the most innovative and attractive way, it’s essential that we prepare for big stories well before they happen.
- A calendar will be visible in the newsroom to highlight the most important campus and community goals each month.
