Update on Center for Public Interest Journalism at Temple University
Just a brief update to let you know the Center for Public Interest Journalism now has an active website. Temple University also made a formal announcement of the launch of the Center today in the Temple Times. As mentioned in the previous post, the Center is expected to support the public interest journalism community in Greater Philadelphia in the following ways:
- Incubating the Philadelphia Public Interest Information Network
- Field building through trainings and events
- One-stop shopping for the resources of the University
- Professional network building through convenings and information sharing
- Research, as needed, to inform those evaluating the nature, impact and efficacy of public interest journalism
Updates on upcoming Center activities should be made over the coming weeks, and will also be shared here. Thanks for your interest in the project.
