The News Co/Lab works to
advance media literacy through journalism, education and technology.
We’re based at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
We experiment with new ways to increase public understanding of how news works. Rather than duplicate existing projects, we promote them and seek to expand their efforts. We collaborate with many partners.
We help newsrooms try new ways of being open about who they are, what they do and why — and to engage with their communities in ways that help people seek, understand, act on and even create news.
We’re grateful for support we’ve received from the Facebook Journalism Project, Craig Newmark Philanthropies, Democracy Fund, Rita Allen Foundation and News Integrity Initiative.
