David Rabkin project for Experiential Journalism

Grocott's Mail has undergone many changes in its long history. In 2003, Rhodes University bought the paper to set up the David Rabkin Project for Experiential Journalism training. Rhodes University is the sole shareholder of this Limited Liability company and any profits go to student bursaries at the university.

Vision: To produce viable and high-quality independent media that serve the community of Grahamstown as well as the training interests of the Department of Journalism and Media Studies at Rhodes University.

Mission: To simultaneously serve the community and to develop new ways in which journalism is taught at university level in South Africa.
