Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute New York University
About This Funder
At New York University, we believe that journalism has a serious public mission, and can make a difference in the world. We want to educate those who agree. Opportunities abound in the media world, but the opportunity to do compelling work that informs, engages and matters to the societies in which we live--this is what drives our faculty, motivates our students, and shapes our basic approach. Great journalism has always come from the great cities of the globe, and we believe that the city of New York is the best place to learn to be great. Here is where power and wealth concentrate, news and culture originate. New York, of course, is a news center and media capital without rival, headquarters for the national networks, newspapers, magazines and major publishers. But it is also a huge metropolis and more than ever an international city, teeming with immigrants, global actors and, naturally, compelling stories.
