The Missouri Information Corps is a pop-up newsroom reporting on underserved communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sponsored by the Missouri School of Journalism and the Missouri Press Association, journalism students and graduates are working this summer to cover the pandemic’s impact on smaller communities that may otherwise go unreported. All of the work produced through this project will be available for use by any Missouri news outlet.
