Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism

The Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism began in 2009 and is housed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s School of Journalism. WCIJ is nonpartisan and nonprofit, and collaborates with local news organizations to increase the quality and quantity of investigative reporting in Wisconsin (population 6 million), while training current and future generations of investigative journalists. Since its launch, the Center has distributed more than 155 major reports, ranging from the dairy industry and campus sexual assault to DNA testing that frees innocent prisoners.
