ACCOMPLISHMENTS | Lane Bove, Loyola Marymount University’s senior vice president of student affairs, was given the College Media Association Louis E. Ingelhart First Amendment Award, which is presented for extraordinary, long-term contributions in support of the First Amendment. The ceremony took place during the National College Media Convention, in Dallas on Oct. 28, and covers all aspects of college media, from rapidly changing multimedia platforms to newspaper, broadcast, yearbook and magazine journalism.
The Ingelhart First Amendment Award is not given every year by the association, but only when meritorious candidates are brought forward. It is believed that this is the first time the award has been given to a senior university administrator, rather than a professional journalist, media adviser or an expert in media law.
Bove made an extraordinary endorsement of freedom of expression relating to her life and career in the below video, which was shown to the audience.
