Brian Brooks, associate dean for undergraduate studies and administration, has served as deputy director or director of the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund editing internship program at Missouri for more than 30 years. He said that the School has led the nation in the number of Dow Jones internships for at least the last five years.

“There are only about 80 students from around the country who get these internships,” Brooks said. “For one school to get this many is a tremendous honor. It says a lot about the students who go here and Mizzou’s commitment to copy editing. We have a high number of students who are interested in copy editing.”
