The Center for Ethics in Journalism of the School of Journalism and Strategic Media at the University of Arkansas’ J.

The University of Arkansas Center for Ethics in Journalism will play an integral role
in shaping the future of journalism by educating students and professionals on the
tenets of ethics, preparing them to employ those principles as a matter of course
and teaching them to reach ethical decisions as routine and not exception.
