Nurturing a new partnership

Posted: Sept. 19, 2013 | Tags: journalism

The partnership between the Investigative Reporting Workshop and The Washington Post continues to grow, with Workshop interns tackling local stories as well as researching and reporting for major projects by the investigative team. Today the Post features a profile of Andrew Rabens, a special adviser at the State Department,and a finalist for a Samuel J. Heyman Service to America medal. It was written by Jessica Schulberg, a second-year master's student in the School of International Service at American University.

Schulberg is a Workshop intern assigned to our ongoing coverage of the immigration issue, and she also is taking an investigative class with John Sullivan, an Investigative Reporter in Residence at the American University School of Communication, and on the investigative team of The Washington Post. Sullivan's class meets at the Post, where students have been assisting reporters on in-depth projects to be published later in the year. She previously worked as a researcher for Mark Mazzetti of The New York Times for his book, "The Way of the Knife: The CIA, a Secret Army, and a War at the Ends of the Earth."

Last month, the Post published Alexia Campbell's storyabout hundreds of elderly and disabled people in the District of Columbia who lost Medicaid services because of bureaucratic errors. Campbell was a Workshop Graduate Fellow for the 2012-2013 academic year, and has now graduated with a master's in journalism and public affairs.
