College Media Advising

Chris Evans critiques The Vermont Cynic at the University of Vermont with the newspaper’s student editor-in-chief, Erika Lewy, and managing editor, Olivia Bowman.

My background as a reporter and First Amendment advocate informed my work as the University of Vermont’s student media adviser, a position for which the College Media Association named me its distinguished multimedia adviser.

As an adviser, I seek to earn students’ trust so that I can help them develop their own sense of responsibility, learn to choose their boundaries and establish rules for themselves and the peers they lead. To get a sense of how I work, see this story from the University of Vermont titled “Helping protect the future of facts.”

I’m proud to advise my students in their individual, independent efforts to manage The Vermont CynicWRUV-FM and UVMtv.
