Administration
The Center operates as a non-partisan, educational non-profit in the District of Columbia. Exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, it is funded with tax deductible gifts from institutions and individuals. The director of the Center is Terry Michael, whose career includes experience as a newspaper reporter; a political communicator at the state legislative, congressional, national political party committee, and presidential campaign levels; and as a former adjunct lecturer in the School of Media and Public Affairs at The George Washington Univ. in Washington, DC. Michael received the 2001 "Distinguished Service Award" of the Washington, DC Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and the 2002 "Presidential Award" of the Assn. for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, for founding and directing The Politics & Journalism Semester.

Board of Directors and Advisory Board
The operating and advisory boards of the Center include men and women from both politics and journalism.

News Bureaus
Major Washington news bureaus host our students as interns, giving them practical experience in reporting and writing during their weeks in Washington. Many of the bureaus have been with the program since the first class was convened in the Fall of 1989.

Financial Support for the Center
Charging students no tuition or fees, the Center is funded with charitable gifts from media companies, foundations, corporate charitable programs and individual donors, including alumni and their parents.
