UIS to present Government Accountability and a Free Press Project

On November 7 UIS will host the first two programs in the Government Accountability and a Free Press Project, a series of events designed to explore legal, ethical, and practical political and policy issues that may arise as members of the press engage in investigative reporting that is intended to uncover less-than-transparent government conduct.

A luncheon seminar -- featuring Charles Lewis, president of The Fund for Independence in Journalism, and a panel of investigative reporters -- will explore a number of related issues at noon in the PAC Lobby.
