The Virtual Journalism Learning Center addresses the need for training journalists on how to cover crisis situations and natural disasters in their communities. The Center launched in 2009. Since then, 99 journalists and journalism students have been trained through the Center.
The mission of the Center is to help journalists become better reporters so their news stories can indirectly help save lives, relief efforts can be identified quickly, and the general public can be well informed to make the best decisions during these moments of crisis or disaster.
We offer courses throughout the year. Check back often to find out when our next course will be offered. Our resources section features several websites related to the topic of natural disasters. Enjoy exploring our site!
