The Center for Innovation in College Media is a non-profit think-tank that was created to help college student media adapt and flourish in the new media environment. In 2010, CICM was folded into College Media Association, Inc.
We hope to achieve our mission by a number of efforts, including:
- National hands-on training workshops and conferences.
- Regional hands-on training workshops.
- Open-Source technology development and testing.
- Open-source research about college media and technology.
- Showcasing examples of innovative student work on the web site.
- Track emerging trends in news media that will impact college media organizations.
- Partnering with other organizations to explore ways to improve the transition to new media skills for student journalists.
