Helping College Students Know the World Better
A Public Service Project from DailyChatter
DailyChatter is offering free subscriptions to students at participating colleges and universities in the United States and at selected schools internationally. This is our commitment to help students be better informed about the wider world at a time of weakened journalism institutions and intrusive social media.
Students keep their free subscriptions for as long as they are enrolled at their institution. We also provide complimentary subscriptions to faculty members at participating schools.
This new program launched at the University of Oklahoma in the spring semester of 2017 and was so successful with students that it inspired us to see if we could achieve similar results more widely. We recruited another dozen 12 colleges and universities for the 2017/2018 academic year. The response was far beyond our expectations, with a 40% average daily open rate for the newsletter by the nearly 1700 students enrolled. That would be a stellar result among adults but for 18 to 23-year-olds that level of response to the serious global news is truly remarkable.
DailyChatter is now reaching out to nearly 200 leading public and private universities for the 2018-2019 academic. If you have not heard from us but would like to learn more about participating, please contact Elizabeth Bartle, our Director of University Relations, at [email protected].
