The Iowa Center for Public Affairs Journalism is a nonprofit investigative news organization affiliated with the University of Iowa.

The center was launched in spring 2010 by University of Iowa professor Stephen Berry and doctoral student Robert Gutsche Jr. It was initially staffed by students and interns working for free, though its leaders have plans to provide a paid fellowship for a reporter and eventually paid interns and a full-time director. Its initial fiscal sponsor is the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism.

They also plan to distribute articles through the center’s website, IowaWatch.org, as well as other media outlets throughout the state. The center is a member of the Investigative News Network.

The center covers state and local government, consumer affairs, sports, and arts and culture.
