Selected Accomplishments

Andrew Matranga is a versatile media educator and media professional with more than a decade of experience in the classroom and in the field. He continually capitalizes on emerging trends with well-crafted, interactive lesson plans. He brings to every project a unique editorial perspective, with a foundation in cartographic design, print and digital publishing, and video production. He has a wealth of practical knowledge when it comes to user experience, content production, change management, and social media—crucial elements that can be applied to any modern-day journalism effort. Andrew's current project on campus involves The Clarion, DU's student-produced news outlet, and the shift to a digital-first model for editorial production and content distribution.
