About Carol Zuegner

I am  a journalism professor/journalist and chair of the Department of Journalism, Media and Computing at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebreaska

I teach writing, editing, social media and entrepreneurial journalism. I am part of a team that leads students in Backpack Journalism, projects that take uCarol Zuegners to the developing world to produce a documentary and blogs. You can read our blogs and see our award-winning films.

I love journalism and its potential, no matter the platform. I believe in the power of telling stories, of finding out things and holding those in power accountable.

I feel I am always exploring what’s next for journalism, trying to figure it out for myself and my students. exploring, I mean just that. I am often lost, perhaps wandering, but I’m going in the right direction. I’ve worked for the Associated Press, earned master’s and doctorate degrees and am blessed to have landed at Creighton. Until recently, I worked in a newsroom as a copy editor. My academic interests are newsrooms’ use of social media and restorative narrative.
