The Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, with its partners Wisconsin Public Radio, Wisconsin Public Television and the University of Wisconsin-Madison journalism school, has distributed more than 20 major reports to news outlets serving more than 2 million residents in the state and surrounding areas in just over one year, reports American Journalism Review. One big collaborative project in February examined the underreporting of sexual assaults on college campuses. That was a joint project among the Investigative News Network, the Center for Public Integrity, National Public Radio and five nonprofit investigative centers around the country. “It’s been an amazing first year full of more challenges and more successes than I could have imagined,” said Andy Hall, center director.
