Patrick Linehan, an honors junior majoring in newspaper and online journalism, is one of two SU students selected to be part of a team of student journalists from 16 universities who will conduct an extensive investigation examining youth violence and the juvenile justice system in America.
Headquartered at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, News21 was established a decade ago by the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to demonstrate that college journalism students can produce innovative, in-depth multimedia projects on a national scale.
This year, the team of student journalists will focus their efforts on investigating disparities in sentencing and jail time, conditions of juvenile detention facilities and the impact on families, communities and victims. Fellows will travel across the country to report stories, and their work will be published as a multimedia project online and shared with industry partners across the country.
