In April 2014, our idea to start a news lab at the University of New Mexico won a grant from the Online News Association. We’re one of twelve universities that received funding as part of the Challenge Fund for Innovation in Journalism Education.
We hope you think what we’re doing — putting students out in the community and covering real stories — is important. We hope you’ll engage with our writers and photographers as they begin their careers bringing you fact-based, ethical journalism.
As we work with students, we also will aggregate news from our partners, providing you with a hub for news about New Mexico.

Our fall 2020 editors bring diverse skills in writing, editing, and social media. Bella and Joe will help lead our student newsroom as we examine issues facing New Mexico.
