Providing a valuable news resource for a diverse refugee population is the aim of Nebraska Mosaic, a capstone course in UNL’s College of Journalism and Mass Communications. The community news project gives student journalists a chance to hone their international reporting skills by developing stories, photos and videos covering refugees navigating their new lives in Lincoln, Nebraska, a federally designated resettlement community. Their work is published online at http://cojmc.unl.edu/mosaic/ and through social media. Nebraska Mosaic is the outgrowth of a 2010 New Voices grant from the J-Lab at American University. Tim Anderson, associate professor of practice in news-editorial, is project adviser.
