The Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism, the nation’s first investigative reporting center based at a university, was launched in 2004 to help fill the void in high-quality public interest and investigative journalism. As one of the pioneers in the new nonprofit journalism, our goals are to investigate significant social and political problems and human rights issues, and uncover corporate and government abuses of power. Founded by longtime investigative journalist and editor Florence Graves, the Schuster Institute is among just a handful of independent reporting centers in the United States focused on local, national, and international issues—and the only one whose central focus is social justice and human rights.
