Impact Journalism Day: Read about student projects making a difference

April 10, 2017, 1:31 a.m.

The Daily has joined 20 other college newspapers from around the world for Impact Journalism Day Universities, an initiative to showcase student projects furthering social and environmental causes. To mark Impact Journalism Day, The Daily is publishing a selection of articles from other participating campus news organizations. While the projects featured vary widely — from a leadership camp for Palestinian refugee youth to a pantry for college students struggling with food insecurity — they all give a glimpse into the work students are doing to make a difference in their communities and beyond.

Readers can visit to view all stories and vote for their favorite project. The winning project will have the opportunity to pitch at One Young World, an annual global summit for young leaders aged 18 to 30.
