Led by Melissa Tully, the director of Iowa’s School of Journalism and Mass Communications, the initiative integrates reporting into classes and offers paid internships at the acquired newspapers. This innovative approach not only prepares students for the challenges of the journalism industry but also contributes to the preservation of community journalism amidst widespread closures.

By partnering with community enterprises, colleges like Iowa are not only fulfilling their social missions but also equipping students with essential skills for their future careers. This initiative sets a precedent for other institutions seeking to bridge the gap between academia and real-world experience, offering a promising model for journalism education in the digital age.
