Missouri School of Journalism

Our home at the top-ranked Missouri School of Journalism gives RNF exclusive access to the university’s world-class research facilities and faculty. We regularly partner with the Journalism School’s Center on Religion & the Professions to research the role religion and media play in people’s lives.

Missing VoicesIn recent years we’ve conducted national surveys to assess citizens’ interests and preferences related to news on religion, with the goal of strengthening journalistic coverage of religion in the United States. We also partnered with GLAAD to produce Missing Voices: A study of religious voices in mainstream media reports about LGBT equality.

Center on Religion & the ProfessionsOn a more granular level, RNF conducts message analysis, focus groups and surveys to help clients determine what messaging and presentation strategies will best resonate with their target audiences.
