Locations announced for 2022/23 IRE on Campus program

IRE will provide coast-to-coast training opportunities for college educators and students as part of the IRE on Campus program now entering its third year. 

Six colleges and universities that all serve a large percentage of historically excluded students, have been selected to receive free custom training — Saint Xavier University, San Francisco State University, Texas State University, Santa Ana College, The City College of New York and Saint Peter's University. Up to 25 students and 2 faculty/staff at each campus will receive free IRE memberships, which provide access to invaluable online resources.

IRE is proud to receive generous funding from Lumina Foundation which helped launch the campus initiative in 2019. The two components of the program align with IRE’s continued efforts to expand its diversity, belonging, equity and inclusion efforts:

  • Custom training for students and educators at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions and Minority-Serving Institutions. An IRE trainer will spend several days on each of the six campuses for a customized program that could feature guest lectures in classes, hands-on data training, an afternoon or evening mini-workshop for all interested students and faculty, a pizza party to brainstorm story ideas, and meetings with administrators and faculty to discuss the latest trends and tools in investigative reporting. 
  • Immersive data bootcamps for journalism educators. Educator boot camps supported by the Lumina Foundation have already taken place online and in Chicago.

“We’re excited to get back on the road and into classrooms across the country,” said Francisco Vara-Orta, IRE’s director of diversity and inclusion, who is leading the training initiative. “It’s more important than ever to give our future generations the skills and tools they need to hold those in power to account.”
