About the Medill on the Hill Program

Medill on the Hill reporters are undergraduate students in Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. They serve as mobile journalists, filing quick updates on news events around Washington, especially from Capitol Hill; as enterprise reporters finding original stories; and as Web producers and reporters. They are covering Washington and posting stories to Medill on the Hill aimed at a young audience to report on how and why what happens in Washington matters to 18- to 24-year-olds. The students’ work is supervised by Medill Associate Professors Mary Coffman and Matt Mansfield, who are based in the school’s Washington program.
