Over the weekend, the NLGJA Board of Directors voted to certify the newest chapter of NLGJA at the University of Oregon and bringing the total number of NLGJA chapters to 19.

The University of Oregon Student Chapter has been working diligently since fall to develop a group of dedicated students interested in NLGJA’s mission to foster fair and accurate coverage of LGBT issues and provide professional development for its members.

The chapter will provide a forum for students at the University to network with their future peers in the communication field. Interested in taking part in local events? Follow the chapter activities at www.nlgja.org/chapters/uoregon.
