What journalism is and what it does has a profound effect on the society we aim to reflect and inform. Our discourse and decisions around immigration, inequality, crime – frankly everything – would be entirely different if they weren’t shaped by the “white gaze” of newsrooms.
That’s why it is no longer enough to cling to vague claims of being “non-racist”. If we want to give real meaning to our warm words about diversity and inclusion, we have to be explicitly and actively anti-racist. What’s more, we have to back that up with genuine commitment, resources and actions, and we need to do that now.

Did you publish a story in an official student publication or for a college journalism class blog and want some added recognition?
Send us the link to the story, and we may link it on our upcoming site, BestofCollegeJournalism.com!
We also will give out some awards on a rolling basis!
We have time to do this. We at Campus News are a bunch of college journalism experts, sitting around the office, anyway. Some of us have judged statewide press association competitions. We’d love to honor your work!(Advisors may also send links.)
No fees, no expensive awards ceremony in a major city — this is just about getting our work out there!
