Adara Donald is a native of Tennessee and is a first-year M.S. student concentrating in Strategic Communications. In May of 2021, she obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from the IU Media School. During her undergraduate career, Adara worked for the IU School of Education’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, which sparked her interest in DEI studies. With this interest, Adara has researched the language used in the media to describe Black vs. White criminal activity and the ethics behind this reporting. She is still exploring this realm by examining the effects communication from or about social movements may have on diverse communities.
Adara is also the Director of the Media Living Learning Center and is an Instructor of Record with the Media School.
