NPR Investigative Project
Rachel Otwell, a reporter for NPR Illinois 91.9 UIS, has been awarded a grant from ProPublica for a year-long investigative project that focuses on issues related to sexual harassment and abuse on college and university campuses in Illinois. The grant provides funding, research, editorial and engagement support. ProPublica has provided similar grants to 13 other newsrooms across the nation "to execute accountability stories that would not otherwise have been possible."
"The issue of sexual violence on college campuses is one I’ve been interested in reporting on for a long time," Otwell said. "I look forward to doing my small part in helping survivors and others have their voices heard, in hopes of change." (Based on a news article from NPR Illinois.)
