Five New York City Universities Partner to Defend Independent Media and Journalism

Five of New York City’s universities announced today a partnership aimed at supporting and defending journalism and independent news media — one of the most critical elements of our democracy — as they are increasingly under threat. … “New York University is proud to partner with our colleagues across New York City toward our shared commitment to a free and independent press; our programs develop technology in service to society, and we are confident that all our students will create work of lasting impact for the media industry that’s so crucial to us all,” said R. Luke DuBois, co-director of NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering’s Integrated Digital Media Program.
