The Center on Media and Society "at the University of Massachusetts Boston was created in April, 2004 as a resource for the university, the community, and the professional worlds of journalism and politics. As part of the McCormack Graduate School of Policy Studies, the Center complements and enhances academic courses and research. It also serves an important role in the University’s public mission, contributing to the diverse communities from which its students come, to the greater New England area, and to the practice of journalism around the world. The Center supports the highest standards of professional and academic practice, and encourages engagement in civic life.

"The Center’s founding director is former Wall Street Journal correspondent Ellen Hume, who served as executive director of the Shorenstein Center on Press, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, and also as director of PBS’s Democracy Project. Prof. Mark Schlesinger is the Center's academic advisor." [1]
