Innocence Institute of Point Park University

Spring 2012

Since its founding in 2001, the Innocence Institute of Point Park University has provided students of journalism and mass communication with unique opportunities to learn investigative journalism from a practical perspective.  

In March 2012, after a year of careful consideration, the Innocence Institute ceased accepting new cases. Institute director Professor Bill Moushey will work over the next year to transition the existing cases under consideration back to the appropriate parties.

The practical approach to investigative journalism of the Innocence Institute has been moved under the larger umbrella of the Point Park News Service.
