"This Collaborative Center will serve not just to benefit Mercer, The Telegraph and Georgia Public Broadcasting. It is a gift to undergird democracy in every city, town and county where these journalists will live and work for years to come."
David Hudson,Chair, Mercer Board of Trustees, and General Counsel, Georgia Press Association
Our groundbreaking collaboration has students, faculty and veteran journalists working together in a joint newsroom. Learning in a “teaching hospital” model, our students engage the community using the latest digital tools and leave with a portfolio of published work that gives them an edge in a rapidly changing, but never more important, field.
We invite you to explore our site, learn what makes CCJ special and how we are transforming journalism education and our community.
"With support from Knight Foundation and our media partners, Mercer will be able to offer the nation's best preparation for future journalists—one that is both skilled in new media and grounded in the liberal arts. I am also excited because many other Mercer students will be able to take courses through the collaboration and understand the importance of journalism in building community and preserving democratic institutions."
Dr. Lake Lambert, Dean of Mercer’s College of Liberal Arts
