Education

The Pulitzer Center is committed to building global awareness through education. We work with elementary schools, high schools, and universities to bring pressing international issues, and the journalists who cover them, into the classroom.

Elementary, Middle, and High Schools: K-12

Want to inspire your students with global issues and the journalists who cover them? Our programs engage students, foster curiosity, and encourage critical thinking.

We provide hundreds of free lesson plans, powerful classroom engagements and visits, and customized workshops and school-wide projects.
