Bob Dotson, the NBC News correspondent and The New York Times best-selling author, has seen firsthand the ways Webster University curriculum spans borders through a global network of excellence.

The legendary storyteller visited yet another Webster campus this month when he spoke with students and faculty at Webster Vienna April 14.

Earlier in April, Dotson spoke at the Geneva campus, where he conducted a workshop with students on storytelling under deadline and later shared insights from his career in journalism during an evening lecture for the campus community.

Dotson has visited the campus in Webster Groves — the St. Louis suburb where he was born and where Webster University was founded in 1915 — on multiple occasions to speak with School of Communications students and broader audiences.

The recent visit to Webster Vienna was described by Gergana Manolova and Philipp Gruell in The Loop:

The atrium of Webster University felt like a campground Tuesday night. Some 50 students and faculty members became little campers, sitting on wooden logs around a bonfire and listening to the tales of Bob Dotson, a retired NBC reporter and lifelong storyteller.

Dotson’s talk focused on the elements of storytelling, tips for identifying good stories, and the determination and diligence required to build a career as a journalist.
