About the WORD
A dynamic experiment for teaching journalism. Also a significant source for helping students get internships and jobs in journalism and communications and media. Has received several grants, more than a half-dozen from Hunter College, one from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation, the Independent Press Association of New York (now the New York Community Media Alliance) and the FORD Foundation, the latter providing funds for an experiment with a multimedia, ethnic news reporting project for undergraduate students.
The WORD is an advocate of progressive journalism and a staunch advocate of student journalism, and more than any other faculty- or student-operated news media at the College and the City University of New York, has been in the vortex of the most contentious battles and issues regarding teaching, writing instruction and academic freedom. And it prevails.
