2024 Collaborative Journalism Summit DAY 1 — May 9, 2024, 1:00 p.m.

How community colleges are fueling local news ecosystems Community colleges across the country can play a critical and catalyzing role in local news.

By equipping more people to participate in gathering and sharing reliable information – particularly those who have historically been excluded from, and harmed by, legacy media – community colleges can function as collaborative hubs that connect people in their communities with opportunities to get involved in the local news ecosystem.

Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland is working with Neighborhood Media Foundation, Signal Cleveland, and the Journalism + Design lab at The New School on a variety of programming to nurture more grassroots journalism in the city and discuss how others can adopt similar models.

Speakers: Cole Goins, Journalism + Design at The New School; Erika Bell, Cuyahoga Community College; Helen Maynard, Signal Cleveland; Rich Weiss, Neighborhood Media Foundation Location: Wayne State University Community Arts Auditorium (adjacent to McGregor), 450 Reuther Mall, Detroit, MI 48202
