Brett Oppegaard, an assistant professor of multimedia journalism at Washington State University Vancouver, has accepted an assistant professor position at the University of Hawaii at Manoa beginning in August.
Oppegaard will be teaching multimedia journalism at the flagship campus just outside of Honolulu.
WSU Vancouver offers a minor in communications through a partnership between The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication and The Creative Media & Digital Culture Program. The communications minor teaches new methods of writing and media composition for digital and analog contexts.
WSU Vancouver’s Murrow minor will continue and faculty will be in place for fall semester, which begins Aug. 25, said Brenda Alling, spokeswoman for WSU Vancouver.
Oppegaard was a reporter at The Columbian from 1994 to 2007.
