Center for Democracy, Journalism and Citizenship

A joint effort of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Democracy, Journalism and Citizenship will allow Syracuse University to address some of the biggest challenges of our time: loss of trust in journalism and democracy, political polarization and the deterioration of civil discourse.
