On Tuesday, Howard University (HU) launched the Center for Journalism and Democracy, a one-of-a-kind academic center founded by an award-winning journalist and author of Project 1619. Nicole Hannah Jones.

The Center will serve as a hub for higher education journalism for students, faculty, and professionals in the fields. Programs and activities will focus on promoting investigative journalism, with an emphasis on promoting democratic ideals. This will be done by supporting news organizations on campus, providing professional and financial assistance to student journalists, hosting seminars, training faculty, and more.

“Over a year ago, I came to Howard University with a vision to create a space for veteran and emerging journalists to hone their craft and respond to our increasingly threatened democracy. Today, we are officially launching the Center for Journalism and Democracy, and we are convening the inaugural Democracy Summit to showcase our philosophy that democracy does not guarantee journalism,” Hannah Jones said in a press release. “Not only free, but demanding one. The Center aims to be a premier resource and national player in investigative journalism. We are an open learning community with a mission to galvanize the profession to live up to the urgency of the moment.”
