  • Campus Undercovered

    In an investigative mini-series, the NBC News Investigative Unit undertook a deep look at an array of new and under-covered issues on college campuses. It included a first-of-its-kind investigation for a national broadcast network questioning whether on-campus sexual assault tribunals are violating due process rights, including those of alleged perpetrators. It featured a multi-month, nation-wide investigation of college mental health policies, uncovering a trend of students claiming that they have been suspended or expelled for seeking help with mental health issues. It also brought viewers a rare, frank look inside the world of prescription “smart drug” abuse. In each case, these stories triggered pointed responses from the schools involved, sometimes resulting in tangible changes in the lives of the students featured, with potentially significant implications for other students in similar situations.

  • Burning the evidence

    Minnesota Public Radio investigates the incineration of the remains of thousands of ethnic Albanians by Serbian forces under the command of Slobodan Milosevic during the 1999 war in Kosovo. The secret operation was part of a highly-organized effort by Serbia's leadership to conceal evidence of possible war crimes from international investigators. Documentation shows that the operation was carried out by an elite unit of the Serbian security service.
