The New York Times Student Journalism Institute is back this spring in an all-remote format with this year’s cohort featuring 46 students from 38 universities.
These students will come together virtually to report, write, edit, design pages in print and online, drive social media accounts, and shoot photos and video under guidance from the Times journalists, who will serve as The Institute’s faculty.
Additionally, the Institute welcomes back Richard G. Jones who has been named interim director for 2021. Jones previously led the program from 2015 to 2017, when he left The Times to head the journalism program at the University of Notre Dame.
The class will also gather together from May 16 to 21 for online seminars featuring Times reporters and editors.
