The Journalism Department has been presented with a generous opportunity. Alumnus
Steve Luttmann recently established the L. Dupre Long Journalism Fund to honor the
former faculty member and support students.
Steve is currently matching donations to the fund to increase its impact. An important
fund for the department, it recognizes student excellence in news editing while also
providing students with vital professional development travel funds.
L. Dupre Long taught news/editorial courses from 1963 to 1982. Known for high journalistic
standards and a no-nonsense approach while teaching, Long received the U of M’s Herbert
Lee Williams Award in 2011. As a part time copy editor for The Commercial Appeal,
Long was a colleague of Williams.
