The Robin Toner Program in Political Reporting is designed to support programs that keep alive the flame of quality, fact-based political journalism that Robin Toner, the late national political correspondent of The New York Times, so cherished and at which she excelled – coverage that illuminates the electoral process, reveals the politics of policy and engages the public in democracy. Plans for the program call for:
- The Toner Prize for Excellence in Political Reporting to be awarded annually by the University’s S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications for the best national or local political reporting of the previous year in any medium – print, broadcast or online.
- The Toner Lecture/Symposium on American Politics and Political Journalism to bring the best in political journalism to the Syracuse campus to discuss the craft and challenges of political reporting.
- The Toner Stipend for Innovation in Coverage of Electoral Politics to be awarded in advance of every presidential election cycle and every important, mid-term election cycles to encourage new techniques in campaign reporting in any medium.
