BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — The Media School at Indiana University plans to launch an independent investigative journalism center in 2019 after getting a $6 million gift.

The university announced Thursday that the Michael I. Arnolt Center for Investigative Journalism will focus on the production and teaching of investigative journalism. The school says the gift from Arnolt, an IU Bloomington alumnus from Indianapolis, is the largest in the journalism program's history.

Arnolt, who earned a bachelor's degree in journalism in 1967, worked for several years as a reporter for The Elkhart Truth. He later transitioned to private business, becoming the co-founder of Graston Technique, a physical therapy method, and maintained a passion for journalism.

The gift counts toward the $3 billion fundraising campaign "For All: The Indiana University Bicentennial Campaign ."
