The New York World produces accountability journalism devoted to deepening public understanding of the ways city and state government shape life in New York City. Our news stories and data projects illuminate issues and engage New Yorkers with information about how their city works.
The New York World is published by Columbia Journalism School, and named for school founder Joseph Pulitzer’s groundbreaking newspaper of the same name. Our reporters are graduates of the Journalism School, on year long post-graduate appointments.
The New York World was inspired in part by News 21, a nationwide effort to teach, challenge, and prepare the next generation of news industry leaders. Columbia’s Journalism School was one of twelve universities that participated in News21. News21 was funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation as part of the Carnegie-Knight Initiative on Journalism Education.
