"One of the nation's boldest journalism experiments." -The New York Times

The Center for Collaborative Journalism (CCJ) is a unique partnership between Mercer University, The Telegraph and Georgia Public Broadcasting, with generous support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and The Peyton Anderson Foundation

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.

 "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."
