Reporting Texas serves four primary goals: To showcase the best work of our University of Texas at Austin undergraduate and graduate students; to offer quality, multimedia reporting to local, state and national news outlets; to experiment with new approaches in journalism education; and to combine community reporting with multimedia resources.
Who Contributes to Reporting Texas?
Reporting Texas supports aspiring journalists by fostering an ethical and creative environment for graduate and undergraduate students at the University of Texas to report the news and shed light on our community and our world. Reporting Texas represents a wealth of disciplines, and all students are invited to present their ideas to our editorial staff, who review and edit all submissions. We welcome reporting through traditional and novel approaches, including text, photos, slideshows, sound slides, videos and mixed media. We give special attention to underreported stories.
Additionally, we look for opportunities to partner with professional news outlets.
