New name for Journalism news lab

The Schieffer School of Journalism is now referring to the new multimedia all-purpose room on the second floor of Moudy South as the “Convergence Center.”

Scheduled to open in mid-August, it has been described on architectural drawings in the past as the “Converged News Room” and elsewhere as the Convergence News Center or the Converged News Lab. "None quite fits its expansive mission – a lab for creating news content, a lab for creating Strategic Communication content, a learning center, a newsroom for student media, a broadcast facility for both radio and television and a showcase for the university," said John Lumpkin, director of the Schieffer School.

The contractor is scheduled to turn over the first phase of the construction on July 24, after it passes city inspection.
