About the Knight Center for International Media: The Knight Center for International Media at the School of Communication, University of Miami, was established in early 2007 with funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The Center operates on the assumption that effective communication across national and cultural borders is essential for addressing the most crucial issues of our time. The Center's work focuses on "Anchor Projects" - like One Water - designed to harness the full range of media platforms and knowledge bases over significant blocks of time to advance solutions. These projects focus on underreported issues of global significance and are broadly informed by the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals.
