Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism won’t be kicked off campus after all

If you missed it over the weekend, the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism got a reprieve from the legislative attempt to boot it from its offices at the University of Wisconsin. Governor Scott Walker blocked the measure via line-item veto.

Walker said arrangements between the university and private groups should be addressed by the UW Board of Regents, not lawmakers in the state budget.

“If there’s going to be a policy about those sorts of shared agreements or shared arrangements, that should be set by the regents and it shouldn’t be set specific to just this particular program,” Walker said.

We wrote about the initial attempt last month, along with how it fit in the history of public media innovation.

In response, the center is launching a WCIJ Education Fund.
