The Poynter Institute

News & Politics

By Sofia Garcia

The Poynter Institute in Saint Petersburg fulfilled Nelson Poynter’s dream to unite thousands of journalists, teachers, and members of the community to learn what makes good journalism work. As a non-profit organization, they are “free of influences that might interfere with journalism or teaching.”

Their wide selection of programs allows students to explore areas such as reporting and editing, fact-checking, tech and tools, and more.

Its code of ethics is what makes the Institute unique. Their five-core values (accuracy, independence, collaboration, fairness, and transparency) guide their work to communicate information correctly and efficiently.
