This study explores how a community-focused approach to “doing journalism” may be a useful way to encourage college students to engage in public life regardless of their interest in journalism as a career. Findings suggest that one such project at a Midwest university challenged students’ preconceived notions about the community they visited and took them out of their comfort zones. It also resulted in some powerful journalism.
