About

The Minnesota Journalism Center was established in 1979 through a gift to the University of Minnesota from the late John Cowles, Sr., chairman of the Minneapolis Star and Tribune Company, and his wife, the late Elizabeth Bates Cowles.

The center's purpose is to improve the practice of journalism, promote interaction between media professionals and the academy, and serve as the outreach arm of the University of Minnesota School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
