The New England Center for Investigative Reporting at Boston University seeks to expose injustice by both producing and teaching in-depth journalism with impact.

NECIR stories reach wide audiences and spur action through mainstream news outlets such as the New York Times, Boston Globe and WGBH. NECIR reporters share their skills with student and mid-career journalists through workshops and classes to further expand NECIR’s impact.
