Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism

We investigate social justice and human rights issues

The Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism, the nation’s first investigative reporting center based at a university, was launched at Brandeis University in September 2004 to help fill a growing void in public interest journalism. Our goals: investigate significant social and political problems and human rights issues, and uncover corporate and government abuses of power. The Institute is one of only a handful of independent reporting centers in the United States focused on national and international issues—and the only one whose central focus is social justice and human rights.
