Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications

Since 2000, the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications has brought in media and business professionals from around New Hampshire to teach free classes and low-cost workshops in all types of communications-related topics. Mrs. Loeb, the late president and publisher of The Union Leader and Sunday News, founded the school to give the public access to information about the First Amendment, journalism and communications in general.

Our students are politicians, police officers and non-profits; lawyers and lobbyists; student reporters, teachers and retirees. In addition to the original meat and potato courses of News Writing, Photography and First Amendment, we have added new courses to keep pace with the rapidly changing world of journalism and communications. They have included Multimedia, Social Media, Public Relations, Blogging and Arts/Culture Criticism. Low-cost workshops in topics such as Public Speaking, Writing News Releases and Newsletters, Facebook for the Fun of It and the Constitution for Teachers fill out our schedule. Our very popular Telling Your Family Story workshop helps families and Historical Societies learn skills to help preserve family or town histories, with instruction in interviewing, presenting stories and preserving them for future generations. The school uses professionals working in the field to teach hands-on classes and workshops. The idea is to teach something today that students can use tomorrow at work or school.

Our instructors have represented media outlets including the New Hampshire Union Leader, NHPR, the Concord Monitor, WMUR-TV, The Telegraph The Associated Press and The Boston Globe, as well as organizations such as BAE Systems, Louis Karno and Co., the New Hampshire Bar Association, the State of New Hampshire and several colleges and universities.
