A journalism program located in the publishing capital of the world should be more than a teaching institute. It should be a publisher. Welcome to the Institute's publishing platform. Here the Institute acts as both public-interest publisher and presenter of work in different media by our students, faculty and alumni. In part, it is our laboratory, the place where we teach journalism by doing journalism and offer it to readers, listeners, viewers, and interactive users. Teaching requires one kind of audience, publishing quite another. This is where the two meet. The emphasis is on quality -- work that is accurate and compelling, innovative and classic. We hope you enjoy it.
