The Centre exists to foster and encourage journalism that is useful to people in being informed and engaged citizens. We advance journalism through our innovation in teaching, research and engagement. We see opportunities in the power of the new tools for informing and being informed. We are a hub of thinking, conversation and creativity. We embrace the opportunities in change, even as we heed the threats. We will harness the unprecedented potential for a more engaged citizenry.

Our fundamental aim is to advance the practice of journalism at a time of great change. Through the triple helix of teaching, research and engagement, we seek to play a constructive role in the future of news media.

The Centre for Advancing Journalism (CAJ) was established in 2009 within the Faculty of Arts at The University of Melbourne. In 2015, the Centre joined the School of Culture and Communication (SCC).
