South Jersey Climate News

Coverage of local environmental issues by Rowan University journalism students


South Jersey Climate News is a collaborative journalism initiative that explores the effects of climate change on a local level.

Our staff is comprised of students from Rowan University and the reporters from The Whit, the independent student news publication.

We cover environmental issues, events and initiatives on campus. We are part of a statewide climate reporting collaboration with members of the NJ College News Commons, a network of campus media outlets. We also work alongside editors of Route 40 to provide original reporting on Atlantic City. Finally, we aggregate news from local news organizations who have agreed to partner with us.

The goal is to better inform the public about the challenges of climate change in our communities and to explore potential solutions.

The project is supported by a grant from the College of Communication and Creative Arts at Rowan University.
