NJCH and Journalism + Design at The New School are pleased to announce the members of our 2023-24 “Fueling Community Journalism Through NJ Community Colleges” cohort!
Each college will receive a $40,000 award from NJCH and J+D to train faculty members and fund tuition-free, noncredit certificates in community journalism at their institutions. These certificate programs, which will be unique to each college, will be developed by the selected colleges through training and support from NJCH/J+D and other local news experts.
Beginning in July 2023, representatives from each college will take part in intensive workshops that will explore how to create, facilitate, and sustain certificate programs that incorporate local voices and community needs. Colleges also will have the opportunity to build sustainable connections with local media partners and nonprofit organizations in their regions through a Spring 2024 community journalism/community college convening, as well as through NJCH/J+D-supported seed grants for the colleges’ community partners. The colleges will launch their inaugural certificate programs in Spring 2024.
Four New Jersey community colleges have received $40,000 awards to train faculty members and fund tuition-free, noncredit certificates in community journalism at their institutions.
