Knight Center for Environmental Journalism

MSU’s Knight Center for Environmental Journalism teaches student and professional journalists how to better report on the world’s most important beat. Students who study with the center produce and publish professional level journalism, gaining valuable experience and material for building resumes. Supporting the Knight Center helps provide important resources for internships, travel, and other expenses of reporting these stories. 

Give to MSU’s Knight Center for Environmental Journalism and help students learn how to report on the world’s most important beat.  

Who We Are
