Grants like the one that funds Mercer's Center for Collaborative Journalism are used to address concerning gaps in journalism education. The Macon Telegraph (a former Knight paper) and Georgia Public Broadcasting(Macon Bureau) are all housed in the same complex with Mercer’s Journalism and Media Studies program.
