The mission of the Center for Cooperative Media is to grow and strengthen local journalism, and in doing so serve New Jersey citizens. We do that through the use of partnerships, collaborations, training, product development, research and communication. We work with more than 150 partners throughout the Garden State, including hyperlocal digital publishers, public media, newspapers, television outlets, radio stations and multimedia news organizations. We are a grant-funded organization based at Montclair State University’s School of Communication and Media. Partnerships
We collaborate with dozens of news and information providers across the state of New Jersey, creating a statewide network known as the NJ News Commons. Collaborations
We coordinate statewide and regional reporting projects, and connect news partners with faculty and students at Montclair State University. Training & Development
We offer innovative professional development seminars, with training sessions on topics such as data and investigative journalism, fact-checking, OPRA, podcasting, video production, digital sales and business planning, among many others. We also offer one-on-one coaching. Communication
We publish a daily newsletter rounding up the day’s top news stories as reported by our New Jersey news partners. We write about what’s happening in our news ecosystem and blog about industry trends. Research
The Center plans to expand its research initiatives on topics pertaining to the sustainability of local journalism. National Conference
