Pursuing Ethics in News and Media
Through collaborations with dedicated instructors, enthusiastic students and committed community partners, the Institute for Ethics and Integrity in Journalism and Media strives to restore trust in journalism and news media at a time when public trust in the fourth estate has been faltering.
Our Fellows serve as resources for students and faculty to cultivate best practices that support fair and accurate journalism across multimedia platforms. Together, we coordinate special programming, guest lectures, networking opportunities, and curriculum enhancements. We arrange for high-quality, paid internships at various media outlets so students can put into practice what they’ve learned in the classroom.
We also are dedicated to nurturing an ongoing conversation with the public to promote a greater understanding of the decision-making practices that ethical journalists and media creators follow when creating content for audiences. Along the way, we recognize outstanding journalism practitioners and underwrite awards to students conducting research in journalism ethics.
Clearly, a well-reported story requires an outlet. To that end, we’ve partnered with Duquesne’s Center for Emerging and Innovative Media and its three state-of-the-art media studios so students can produce professional broadcasts, podcasts, livestreams and pre-recorded content.
