Medill Visits Alumni in Taipei

Earlier this month, Northwestern University Alumni gathered in Taipei, Taiwan to network with fellow alumni over dinner at the Grand Hyatt Taipei. Medill’s Dean Brad Hamm and IMC Program Director Jenna Massey, who both travelled to attend the event, addressed the group, sharing news, stories, and updates surrounding Medill and Northwestern University.

“Taiwan plays an important role in Medill’s global initiatives,” Hamm said about the event. During his first trip to Taiwan, Hamm also visited three top ranking journalism programs including National Chiao Tung University, National Chengchi University and Fu Jen Catholic University. Additionally, Hamm had the opportunity to meet Next Media Animation, a company known for its humorous approach to covering current news. Hamm accepted an endowment on behalf of Medill from Next Media Animation stating, “we look forward to building a strong relationship between the two organizations.”

“We’ve got such a wonderful presence in Taiwan, especially from the Medill IMC Program,” Massey said. “Across industries, professions, and age, we’re always impressed with the diversity of the Northwestern network and the incredible support our alumni offers.”
