The Story Room

Amplify Utah’s inaugural project, in collaboration with nonprofit The Salt Lake Tribune and Salt Lake Community College, contributes diverse perspectives to local news through student journalism. An innovative approach focuses on important issues facing Utah communities and delivers stories to our free repository, providing sources for growing media engagement. This project models how community college students and journalists can bring multi-dimensional viewpoints to local news organizations and provide a source of growing readership.

We offer new voices for a new time by creating deep collaborations between community college media programs and local news organizations, and developing a means to share student reporting broadly.
