Social justice has long been at the heart of many of the subjects I write about. My biographies tell stories of women and men committed to changing the world through non-violent means. This spring, together with the Pulitzer Center team, I worked to select the next class of student fellows from our Campus Consortium. This network of university partners includes liberal arts colleges, community colleges, state universities, historically black colleges and universities, and graduate schools of journalism and public health.

We provide students with fellowships to report on a range of issues—from the rights of the indigenous in the Amazon to women's health education in Morocco and Uganda, Japan's "dementia villages," women IT programmers in Turkey, and refugees from Nigeria, Yemen, and Venezuela. Our student fellows, many of them talented reporters and filmmakers, committed to social justice, are telling stories of today's activists. I'm proud to be associated with them—and thrilled to work with them in the months to come.

Please take a look at their upcoming projects:

You'll find their reporting here in the weeks and months ahead:
