Our Mission

The Dallas Morning News Journalism Innovation Endowment strives to be a leader in pushing media forward while educating students. Through a collective we call the Media Innovation Group, we bring students and professional news organizations together to develop new media initiatives through experiential learning projects. We value ethical journalism that better serves the community, no matter its size, shape or form.


Media Innovation Group Data Fellows

MIG has continued their work on the local campaign finances project, in which fellows will develop and build a searchable database of local campaign finances since 2020. Our student fellows Aislyn Gaddis, Karina Kumar and Olivia Dilley each work in different areas of research from collecting data to presenting it in a podcast format.
