Millions of Americans get their news from student reporters.
We document where university-led programs exist and provide resources to support, encourage and grow more partnerships with local news.

Engaging colleges and students in supporting local news
Local news is more than just a trusted source of critical information; it’s an essential ingredient in a healthy democracy. Communities with dedicated local news organizations report higher levels of civic engagement, social cohesion, and effective problem-solving.
We connect student journalists at every stage of life with local news organizations to help build a world in which every community has access to reliable information by and for the people who live there.
The Center for Community News is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization.
It is supported by a generous grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the UVM College of Arts & Sciences, and individual donors.
