The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting is an innovative award-winning nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting in-depth engagement with underreported global affairs across all media platforms and a unique program of outreach and education to schools and universities. Kent State's School of Communication Studies is part of the Center’s Campus Consortium network of partnerships between the Pulitzer Center and more than 30 other universities and colleges to engage with students and faculty on the critical global issues of our time. At its core, the initiative aims to connect international reporting supported by the Pulitzer Center directly with communities across the U.S., expanding knowledge of the world, sparking conversations across disciplines and inspiring individuals to expand their horizons. These goals are accomplished through campus visits by journalists and international reporting fellowship opportunities for students.
