The ThreeSixty Journalism Homecoming 2023 at the Granda Theater in Minneapolis.

ThreeSixty Homecoming 2023 raised the bar for supporting diverse, young perspectives in journalism.

The Granada Theater stage was graced with the talents and insight of emcee Vineeta Sawkar, who helped ThreeSixty gift Soledad O’Brien with ThreeSixty’s inaugural Opening Doors Honor on April 1.

ThreeSixty’s circle of excellence grew with Rubén Rosario, legendary Pioneer Press columnist, who received our Widening the Circle Award.

Supporters’ generosity helped ThreeSixty raise $69,015 for program access for all students, equity stipends and wraparound services for participants. Plus, an additional $25,000 scholarship over four years was committed for an additional ThreeSixty alum to attend St. Thomas.

ThreeSixty thanks its sponsors Best Buy, MinnPost, Padilla, Star Tribune, Pioneer Press, Weber Shandwick and the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of St. Thomas.
