The OpEd Project is a social venture founded to increase the range of voices and quality of ideas we hear in the world.

Zeba Khan, Workshop Facilitator

The 2017 Merced workshop was led by senior OpEd Facilitator, Zeba Khan, currently a JSK Journalism Fellow at Stanford.
Fellows from 9 UC campuses joined us this spring for OpEd workshops hosted by UC Merced, UC Santa Cruz, and UC Irvine.
Our Fellows have published 30 OpEds since their workshops in venues such as Newsweek and The San Francisco Chronicle.

 

 

 

The Op Ed Project

Write to Change the World

OpEd Workshops across the UC system build the capacity of faculty and postdocs to translate their research for the public.  This program focuses on increasing the number of underrepresented voices in the media and bringing the humanities to bear on public debate. Apply now for Spring 2017 workshops at UC Merced, UC Santa Cruz, or UC Irvine. 

About the OpEd Project

The Op-Ed Project envisions a world where the best ideas - regardless of where they come from - will have a chance to be heard, and to shape society and the world. Working with top universities, foundations, think tanks, nonprofits, corporations and community organizations, the OpEd Project scouts and trains under-represented experts to take thought leadership positions in their fields;  the OpEd Project connects them with national networks of high-level media mentors; and vets and channels the best new experts and ideas directly to media gatekeepers who need them, across all platforms. For more on the OpEd Project, visit their website.
