CBGJ - What We Do

  • Train journalism educators through the Afghanistan University Partnership to develop a journalism program at Nangarhar University, which includes training institutes for Afghan journalism professors in the UAE, India, Turkey and the U.S. The program was funded for three years by a $1.2 million grant from the U.S. State Department, which includes a large number of faculty course releases and one to two graduate assistants annually.
  • Offer annual safety workshops for Latin American Studies, journalism and other students working on the U.S.-Mexico border area, held in Tucson and Nogales, Arizona.
  • Partner with the Border Journalism Network (La red de periodismo de la frontera), which functions as a hub for professionals, educators, and students to improve reporting along the U.S.-Mexico border. The Border Journalism Network has offered workshops co-sponsored with the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma and Investigative Reporters and Editors and includes 11 participating universities and colleges along the border.
  • Sponsor panels and presentations by working journalists and other experts to discuss the crucial topics in global journalism today.
