The Newhouse Center for Global Engagement is dedicated to bringing knowledge to the world through storytelling, collaboration and innovation.


Each project takes a new approach to tackling a global issue, putting theory to practice and contributing to the conversation by creating knowledge and then molding it into an easy-to-consume format. The center supports efforts that transform ideas into action.

Q: What is the purpose of the Newhouse Center for Global Engagement?


The Newhouse Center for Global Engagement is the central hub for all of the Newhouse School's global projects. The center employs storytelling, collaboration and innovation to creatively tackle the world's pressing issues. Public diplomacy is crucial for any international operation, but our focus is to tap into the global communication ecosystem to effect change—from multimedia projects to scholarly research to international relations.

There is often a disconnect between theory and practice, between academia, the professional industry and the real world. We seek to bridge this gap and blur the lines between academics, storytellers and the general public. The center acts as the adhesive binding together these previously distinct groups to form an intelligent collective consciousness prepared to address issues of global concern.

Q: What is Newhouse?


The S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University houses the country's leading communications programs, including broadcast and digital journalism; television, radio and film; public relations; advertising; magazine and newspaper journalism; photography; media studies; and others. Faculty are industry experts who teach students to not only adapt to the ever-evolving media landscape, but also to innovate and become change-makers themselves.
