         The increased funds from the Lamars will boost the stipend for the already-established visiting scholar position, which is held by a communications practitioner, and create a second visiting scholar position for a post-doctoral researcher.

         According to the news release, the Manship family's newly established chair holder will teach courses in media diversity and conduct research on news coverage of racial issues.
