Open Campus is expanding its Local Network to coverage of New York City and North Carolina. 

Open Campus will partner with THE CITY to cover the 25-campus City University of New York. And, it will partner with WUNC, a public radio station located in North Carolina’s Research Triangle, to cover higher education in North Carolina. 

Here are the reporters who will be part of our growing team: 

  • Haidee Chu and Jonathan Custodio at THE CITY will write stories about CUNY, in addition to covering Queens and the Bronx 
  • Brianna Atkinson covers higher education at WUNC; Atkinson is a North Carolina native and the station’s 2023 Fletcher Fellow

The Open Campus Local Network supports full-time higher education reporting around the country. The new partners bring the network to a total of 12 newsrooms and 15 reporters.
