Knowledge on Tap


5:30 pm–6:30 pm
Kaitlin Van Loon, (402) 472-3089,
Cory Armstrong, Ph.D., became the associate dean for research and faculty affairs at University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s College of Journalism and Mass Communications on July 15, 2022. Armstrong has also been appointed as a full professor in journalism and is the Lawrence L. and Ruth E. Pike Professor in Journalism. She has secured grants to study media messaging and severe weather in both the mid-south and southeastern United States. For this month’s Knowledge on Tap, Cory will lead a discussion on her research which combines traditional and emerging media and focuses on how individuals use media to make decisions during weather events. Her studies highlight the often unmet evacuation and safety needs of vulnerable populations during weather emergencies— specifically floods, hurricanes and tornados.
