Friends and colleagues of the late Charles Oberdorf have initiated an annual award for graduating students in the Magazine and Web Publishing program at Ryerson's Chang School for Continuing Education. Charles was a much-loved and respected journalist, editor and teacher and was coordinator of the program. His family is making the first contribution to the fund and his friends and admirers are invited to make donations to support it. The award would be made based on faculty recommendations and student applications demonstrating the qualities that Charles exemplified. These include professionalism and excellence, paired with joy and a sense of drama within magazines as well as demonstrated potential for making the same kind of difference in magazines in future as Charles made during his long career.
Thank you for your consideration.
