On September 12, 2001, Professor Marcia Rock gathered graduate and undergraduate students to cover the aftermath of the World Trade Center attacks. Students went to ground zero and interviewed volunteers, residents and rescue personnel. They also covered the effect on NYU from the streets being shut down, to displaced students to coping with the trauma. They did a story on alumni who were covering the story, the spontaneous gatherings at Union Square and the Candlelight Vigil in Washington Square Park.

Turning Inward: Ethnic Tensions in Russia

In June 1999, NYU’s Center for War, Peace, and the News Media awarded a grant to six NYU graduate journalism students to produce a documentary examining ethnic discrimination in Russia. New immigrants from the country’s southern regions are routinely victimized in racially motivated attacks. Ethnic Russians say that these immigrants are born different, that they are criminals and should not be allowed in the country. The 28-minute documentary produced by NYU broadcast journalism students explores disparate perspectives on a common problem: formerly equal citizens who find themselves suddenly at odds.
