Established in 1977, the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education has been committed to training new cohorts of minority journalists across the country. The Institute is named after the late Robert C. Maynard who was a well-respected African-American journalist and co-founder of the Institute for Journalism Education. The Maynard website is full of resources for minority journalists and those generally interested in increasing the diversity in America's newsrooms. A good place to start is by looking over some of the columns by Richard Prince such as "Diversity's Greatest Hits" and taking a look at some of the updates from Maynard Institute alumni. The "Resources" section is exemplary and visitors will find online diversity guides, information about career opportunities, and an interactive timeline titled "Minorities in the Media: 1900-Present."
