Klein College of Media and Communication launched the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation Center for Urban Investigative Reporting in the summer of 2021 thanks to a $1.2 million founding grant from the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation of Berkeley, California.

Through the Logan Center, Klein students and faculty report not only on these problems, but on potential solutions, closely examining what has worked well in other cities across the nation and the globe.
