Dr. Yousuf is strongly committed to helping his students succeed beyond classrooms and to serving communities. In addition to serving on thesis/dissertation committees and supervising independent studies, Dr. Yousuf hired multiple undergraduate research assistants from his department and other departments (e.g., Political Science) to work on his grant-funded research projects. On several occasions, he managed funds from universities to take undergraduate students to conferences such as Computation+Journalism symposium and IRE (Investigative Reporters & Editors) conference. He also serves as the faculty advisor of several chartered student organizations at UNM.
Dr. Yousuf has been serving as an editorial board member for the Newspaper Research Journal, a major academic journal dedicated to publishing research about legacy news organizations. He is serving as research co-chair of the Media Management, Economics and Entrepreneurship Division, AEJMC.
In addition to various services that Dr. Yousuf provides to his work-related communities, he is also committed to serving communities outside of the university. Particularly, he is passionate about efforts to preserve local news. He believes that continuous decay in local news contributes to rising misinformation and eroding democratic principles. He has been serving as an advisory panel member of the New Mexico Local News Fund (NMLNF), an organization that seeks to “grow the ecosystem of local news across our state to better serve the information needs of all New Mexicans.” He also serves as a volunteer newsletter consultant for the Non-profit Sector News, a small non-profit news organization based in Pennsylvania.
