As a student at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, Simon Galperin decided to look backward – to his journalism education at Rutgers University in New Jersey, where he co-founded Muckgers, an independent investigative and storytelling outlet covering the university. Seeking to gauge the strength and nature of the college journalism ecosystem, he conducted a survey of student news organizations at public and private universities throughout the Garden State.
This month, SPLC Executive Director Frank LoMonte speaks with Galperin to dig deeper into the how’s, why’s, and what’s of the ambitious ecosystem survey. Learn how he engaged the scholastic journalism community and what he learned about the innovations and challenges within student journalism.
