The Engaging News Project (ENP), housed at the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life in the Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas at Austin, evaluates ways that newsrooms can engage audiences by conducting trailblazing social-scientific research—often in collaboration with news organizations—to understand how citizens interact with the news. It then disseminates its findings to the broader journalism industry. In 2014, the Rita Allen Foundation provided a grant of $75,000 per year over two years. After attracting additional investment from the Democracy Fund, Hewlett Foundation and Knight Foundation, ENP has made notable progress. In particular, it has produced strong experimental work, built an impressive network of advisors and users of its tools, and forged formal partnerships with some of the nation’s most prominent for-profit and nonprofit newsmakers, including The Washington Post, The New York Times, Solutions Journalism Network, the Mozilla Foundation and The Sacramento Bee. With this new grant, ENP plans to increase awareness of its research, tools and strategies among the most influential and geographically diverse newsrooms.
