Project Citizen is a boundary breaking collaboration between students and faculty at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California, Louisina State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland.

Over the course of a semester, students work in teams and investigate important and compelling stories that concern all of us, seeing the issues from different perspectives and sharing divergent viewpoints and backgrounds. This student-driven partnership allows student journalists, filmmakers, advocates, researchers, and storytellers to collaborate on stories that exist at the intersection between a controversial topic and civil discourse.
