Helping College Students Know the World Better

Join other leading colleges and universities and provide your students with our independent, non-partisan, international daily newsletter. And best of all, it’s free! Forever!

DailyChatter Features

Presents stories in a way that’s easily and quickly read by students on their phone, tablet, or laptop.

Every weekday scours the global landscape to offer our unique perspective on the key global issues.

Delivers the broadest geographic coverage of the world, reporting on 134 countries in every region in 2018.

Provides students with high-quality original source links both US and international so they can dig deeper into the underlying issues.

Last year we launched a pilot free subscription program at 13 colleges and universities, and nearly 1,700 students signed up. But most importantly, they read, with daily open rates averaging 39%, a truly exceptional result. A survey of participating students showed that 32% read the newsletter daily and another 31% read it several times a week. 98% said reading DailyChatter increased their knowledge of the world.

Now, DailyChatter is available nationwide – still free, still compelling, and easier than ever to get started. Our original 13 schools have grown to more than 40 and our student subscribers to more than 4,000. Our goal is to provide this service to a majority of American college and university students.

“We are pleased to collaborate with DailyChatter to offer this free, non-partisan news source to students at Tufts… At Tisch College, we believe that being an informed citizen is the first step to engaging with our communities and the world in order to solve pressing problems. DailyChatter helps advance that mission by facilitating access to international news in a format that is timely and accessible to students.”

Alan Solomont, Dean of the Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts University

“Thank you so much for reaching out to NKU and for making this wonderful opportunity available to our students, faculty and staff.  I have personally been enjoying reading the DailyChatter every morning.  I am an avid listener of NPR and this is an excellent supplement to it.  The stories your editorial team features rarely get much attention, if any, even though they are most important.  Working with international students from all over the world, I appreciate the insight it provides in the countries from which some of them come.  I believe it will help me serve them better by being better informed about the matters that most concern them.”

With all my appreciation, Dr. Francois Le Roy, Executive Director, Center for Global Engagement and International Affairs, Northern Kentucky University

“Like all journalism and media programs, we at Gaylord College strive to send graduates into the wider world as educated citizens who are informed on the issues of the day. We’ve found DailyChatter is a timely and useful tool to do just that. The feedback from our students about it is nothing but positive. We look forward to a long relationship with the DailyChatter team.”

Ed Kelley, Dean, Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication, University of Oklahoma
