To create a journalism education innovation fund that will initially take on a long-term national News21 project at Arizona State University
The nationally acclaimed Carnegie-Knight News21 program, created by the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, is an intensive experience in which students work with top professionals to blend serious, in-depth reporting with innovative digital storytelling to create powerful national investigative news packages. The program started in the 2005-2006 academic year with five schools – the University of California at Berkeley, Columbia University, Harvard University, Northwestern University and the University of Southern California. Three years later, seven other schools joined News21 – Arizona State University, University of Maryland, University of Missouri, University of Nebraska, University of North Carolina, University of Texas and Syracuse University. It has been headquartered at ASU’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication since 2008.
