Series IV: Professional Events & Prizes

Columbia University hosts many national and international programs and prizes for superior work in professional journalism. Awards include the Pulitzer Prizes, Dupont Awards in broadcast journalism, Maria Moors Cabot Prizes in inter-American understanding, and Mike Berger Awards for feature reporting. The school also hosts professional lecture programs and forums such as the Panel Breakfast from the Poliak Center for the Study of First Amendment Issues, Reuter Forums, and Delacorte Center for Magazine Journalism Lectures. Other lectures, such as the Henry F. Pringle Memorial Lectures, are included since they are not targeted solely as student instruction.
