BLOOMINGTON -

Indiana University has moved its National Sports Journalism Center from Indianapolis to the Bloomington campus. IU says it plans to expand the center’s mission of sports media research and provide more outreach and support to students. The university says the center will provide free extracurricular workshops for students interested in sports journalism and media.

“Our goal at Indiana University is to build a world-class sports media program. The National Sports Journalism Center is a key part of that vision, and we will use the resources and connections of the center to provide the highest-quality experience for students studying sports media at IU,” Director Galen Clavio said.

“I’m excited about the new directions we are taking with the center. Building from the solid base and reputation of the center, the new programs we are envisioning will solidify IU’s reputation as a center for education about sports media,” Media School Dean James Shanahan said.

The National Sports Journalism Center was founded in Bloomington in 2009. IU says the program was originally part of the former School of Journalism, which is now part of The Media School.
