The Robert W. Greene High School Journalism Institute

The Robert W. Greene High School Journalism Institute is a free crash course for high school students that will provide expert instruction and hands-on experience in the fundamentals of reporting, writing, editing and photography for print, online and broadcast journalism. Reporters, editors and photographers from some of the New York area’s most respected newspapers, broadcast and online news outlets will train student journalists over the summer using state-of-the-art technology and techniques to help students become the world’s next generation of watchdogs.

Long Island high school students who will be juniors or seniors in the fall live on the campus of Stony Brook University and work in the School of Journalism's newsroom and broadcast center.

The program is named after Robert W. Greene, a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning Newsday reporter and editor. Bob was also a founding faculty member of Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism. Students follow in the tradition of Bob Greene's approach to journalism: that journalists learn best from experience.

Stony Brook University Center for News Literacy

The Center for News Literacy at Stony Brook University was established in 2007 by President Shirley Strum Kenny. It is committed to teaching students how to use critical thinking skills to judge the reliability and credibility of news reports and news sources. It is the only such center in the United States. Funded by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Center currently is committed to teaching News Literacy to 10,000 undergraduates—from across all academic disciplines. The Center also is at work developing innovative curriculum materials for high schools and the general public. Many of these initiatives are funded by grants from the Ford Foundation. With support from the Ford Foundation and McCormick Foundation, the Center convened a national conference, News Literacy: Setting a National Agenda, March 11-13, 2009, and launched a News Literacy high school teacher training program in June 2009. 

Stony Brook University School of Journalism

Established in September 2006, Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism is the first and only undergraduate journalism school in New York State’s public university system.

They work in one of the most technologically advanced newsrooms in the country and produce work across multimedia platforms for both traditional and non-traditional audiences. Home to the nation’s first Center for News Literacy, Stony Brook is also dedicated to educating news consumers and offers the only university-wide course in News Literacy in the country.
