Ivy Tech Multicultural Media Producing Program
In today’s fast-paced and diverse media landscape, it’s essential to have a newsroom that reflects the diversity of the communities it serves. That’s where the Multicultural Media Producing Program comes in.
As the first known program of its kind, it’s designed to provide students with the skills and experience they need to become television news producers and newsroom leaders who are committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in their work.
This program was created in partnership with Circle City Broadcasting, JPMorgan Chase, Ivy Tech Community College Indianapolis, and the DuJuan and Tina McCoy Foundation. The MMPP aims to create work-based learning opportunities for high school and community college students, providing a pathway to a successful career in media. VP of Regional Communications from JP Morgan Chase, Stephanie Gostomski, and Lead for MMPP/MA Dept. Chair of General Studies & Liberal Arts from Ivy Tech, Amanda Owen-Pride joined us to share more information.
The MMPP investment is part of JPMorgan Chase’s broader effort to create a more diverse and inclusive workforce and help all members of the communities it serves access resources to build sustainable wealth.
Financial assistance is available for students accepted into the program. The DuJuan and Tina McCoy Foundation is providing annual need-based scholarships to selected individuals in the program. All students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form and can apply for routine financial assistance.
After acceptance, students must complete the Ivy Tech application process and the FAFSA. Once enrolled at Ivy Tech, students will meet with Ms. Owen-Pride to register for classes.
