Houston Chronicle, RJI partner to keep chemical company data site available for journalists 6/18/19

A resource that helped The Houston Chronicle shed light on chemical disasters and facilities posing the greatest potential harm to the public, in the event of an emergency, got a new lease on life.

After facing an uncertain future after its original owner - the Center for Effective Government - was shut down, the Right to Know Network relaunched June 12 with a more user-friendly, accessible site design.

The redesign happened because of a collaboration between The Houston Chronicle, the Reynolds Journalism Institute and Missouri School of Journalism.

#CommCares: How you can help students in Houston through an emergency scholarship fund 9/18/17

By Temple Northup, director of the Jack J. Valenti School of Communication at the University of Houston

As you know, this has been an incredibly challenging time for the entire city and region. I am reaching out to communication programs and professionals around the country with information about how you can make a direct impact in the lives of communication students here at UH. If you could please share this with colleagues in your area, I would greatly appreciate it.

I have created an emergency scholarship fund for our students. We have about 2,000 majors in the school, and almost all of them work at least part time to support their education. Under normal circumstances, paying tuition and other associated costs can be hard. For some, Harvey has made it that much harder. By supporting this fund, I hope that we can reduce the need to choose between continuing college and acquiring basic necessities.
