Diversity at NYU Journalism

Diversity, equity, and inclusion


NYU Journalism is pursuing a wide-ranging diversity, equity, and inclusion initiative this academic year.

Meet some of our students on Instagram. Come to our panels where we explore journalism, identity and issues that matter through a BIPOC lens. Engage with and tell us how we as a community can move forward in an inclusive and meaningful way.

Coalition of Minority Journalists

Get involved and keep an eye out for events sponsored by the Coalition of Minority Journalists. They are a student-led group focused on uplifting minority journalists. CMJ holds panels and networking events that feature top journalists who share what it takes to be successful as a BIPOC and queer journalist in today’s competitive media landscape.

The coalition is partnered with the National Association of Black JournalistsThe National Association of Hispanic Journalists, The Asian American Journalists Association and The Association of LGBTQ Journalists

Memberships in national journalists associations are inexpensive and come with life changing resources, scholarships and job opportunities.  As part of our diversity initiatives NYU Journalism supports trips to the national convention of BIPOC journalism organizations which includes The Native American Journalists Association.
