Pat Hastings

A UW-Madison faculty associate in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication with 20 years of experience sending countless students into successful careers has earned the honor of having the prefix “distinguished” added to her title.

Pat Hastings is now “Distinguished Faculty Associate.” The designation is reserved for staff whose performance “[requires] extensive experience and advanced knowledge and skills.”

Hastings said that in her time at UW-Madison the accomplishments in the journalism school that she’s most proud of are the Badger Report, the audio storytelling class, and the recognition of student work.
