The venerable Chicago Tribune is one of the nation’s largest metropolitan dailies, with a weekday circulation topping a half million subscribers and Sunday circulation of close to a million readers. So, being mentioned in the Tribune twice within a week—as RIT recently was—is a noteworthy accomplishment.
RIT’s long-running Kids on Campus program, a more than two-decade-old summer “computer camp” for fifth- through 10th-graders, was referenced in the July 16 Tribune article “Camp Geek turning heads” about non-traditional, tech-oriented summer camps for kids. On this week’s “Dateline: RIT – The Podcast,” program coordinator Susan Kurtz describes some of the activities for kids attending the two-week-long camp.
In the Sunday, June 22, edition of the Tribune, remarks by RIT criminal justice professor John Klofas were part of the story “Drug war enforcement hits minorities hardest.” Dr. Klofas discusses effects from so-called “safe zones” created by law enforcement agencies as part of the war on drugs. On this week’s podcast, Dr. Klofas describes the intent behind “safe zones” and unintended consequences from their creation.
Have a great weekend!
