To contribute to and expand the emerging field of digital and media literacy, the Knight School of Communication at Queens University of Charlotte is engaging three constituencies: Students, Community and the field of Communication to foster a high level of civic engagement and learning among university students who in turn will become the digital and media literacy champions in the surrounding community. Queens defines its values as: focus on students, integrity and respect, stewardship, creativity and innovation, and service.

As part of a $5.75 million grant from the Knight Foundation, Queens University is creating an interactive website, an online journal and an annual forum of the “best minds” in the field. This inaugural “best minds” event is taking place this week in Charlotte, NC: Dr. John A. McArthur will host the first session on “The Big Picture” followed by Dan Gillmor’s facilitation of “Nitty Gritty Details.” Dr. Vanessa Domine will facilitate the third session, “Movers and Shakers.” The discussions across 3 days will generate Statements of Intent on key forum topics that can serve as inspiration for future community engagement, research, teaching and learning. The results of DM3C Live will be digitized and shared for public dissemination and future collaboration. You can follow the event on Twitter via #DM3Cclt
