The Corporation brought together some of the nation’s most influential news industry leaders and top journalism educators to engage in a discussion of how to prepare “the best and the brightest” to become tomorrow’s journalists and how to reinvent and reinvigorate the news environment in November 2005. This gathering, one in a series of meetings, was part of an ongoing national conversation among the deans, students, journalists and others involved in the Carnegie-Knight initiative and aimed at creating awareness about the challenges facing the profession of journalism and about the changes that must take place in journalism schools and their curricula if tomorrow’s journalists are truly going to make a meaningful contribution to our knowledge and understanding about the forces that shape our lives. This report has proceedings from that meeting.
