Brown Institute for Media Innovation at the Graduate School of Journalism

Large, open room with wooden floors, large windows, and white walls. There are multiple long, wooden tables with chairs.

The David and Helen Gurley Brown Institute for Media Innovation was established at Columbia and Stanford Universities to inspire and support the creation and development of innovations in media with the potential to inform and entertain in transformative ways. A large, double-height ground-floor suite at the eastern end of Pulitzer Hall - consisting of approximately 4,500 gross square feet - was reconfigured to create a highly visible signature space for the Institute. The space provides the Institute with a technology-driven multimedia newsroom which will merge the delivery of multiple journalistic disciplines within the context of the changing media landscape. The collaborative workspace allows students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and industry leaders to experiment with new technologies and create innovative content and delivery formats.
