The Investigative Reporting Workshop is a nonprofit, editorially independent investigative news organization focusing on significant issues of public concern. IRW is based at American University in Washington, D.C. The Workshop mentors and enables the work of a new generation of investigative reporters while also enlarging the public space for the leading journalists of our time. Long-term projects include coverage of the banking and credit union industries, illegal immigration and the administration's enforcement policies; and the telecommunications industry, particularly as it relates to the digital divide between rich and poor. From 2008 to 2021, IRW partnered with a PBS FRONTLINE team headed by writer-director Rick Young in which students and post-graduate fellows helped to research 15 programs. Since 2013, IRW has had a partnership with The Washington Post in which graduate students work as researchers and reporters on major stories, including contributing to the 2022 Pulitzer Prize for public service for its coverage of the causes, costs and aftermath of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
