Pulitzer Prize winner to discuss state of investigative reporting

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Pulitzer Prize-winning database editor for the investigations unit at The Washington Post will present a free public lecture at 5 p.m. Oct. 2 in 112 Kern Building.

Steven Rich has worked on investigations across several beats at the Post, including stories on civil forfeiture, college athletics, the National Security Agency, policing and school shootings. 

He was part of two Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting projects, including one for national reporting in 2016 and one for public service in 2014. He also was a recipient of the Peabody Award in 2017.

In his talk, Rich said he plans to cover “the state of investigative reporting, the evolution of data reporting and access to information in the Trump era.”
