Part II 

Register HERE

The OpEd Project aims to increase the number of underrepresented voices in the media, particularly encouraging women, people of color, and others on the margins to learn strategic steps to translate their ideas into a public arena. The OpEd Project trains people – thinkers and scholars – in real tools for successful op-eds, blogs, websites, and video: 

Our goals for faculty in Northeast Wisconsin Higher Education from underrepresented voices in media:

  • Magnify voices of underrepresented scholars and thinkers
  • Learn concrete skills to get ideas to the public in N.E. Wisconsin and beyond
  • Create a community within/across campuses for writing support 
  • Propel our campuses as thought leaders and public voices in our region
