Knight Center to Close

The Knight Center for Specialized Journalism will close at the end of the month.

 “The rapid changes in news media technology and economics require new thinking. This move will enable us to focus fully on designing new approached to the challenges of the 21st-century journalism,” stated Dean Kevin Klose of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland.

 The Knight Center has provided “seminars and specialized educational fellowship to more than 2,700 journalists from more than 500 news organizations,” stated in the article Knight Center Closing Dec. 31 by The Philip Merrill College of Journalism.

“We are in active discussion with the Knight Foundation about future collaborations to provide essential, forward-looking and dynamic multimedia specialized journalism education,” Klose said. “We thank the Knight Foundation for its years of enduring support and intense interest in the work of the Knight Center,” Klose said.
