The Boston Globe - 06/16/2015
Veteran business journalist Jonathan Kaufman will be the next director of Northeastern University’s School of Journalism, the college announced Tuesday.
Kaufman, the Bloomberg News executive editor, will begin July 13. He will oversee a team of faculty who teach 225 undergraduate journalism students as well as growing graduate programs. He succeeds associate professor Dan Kennedy, who is serving as interim dean after longtime director Stephen Burgard died in 2014.
Kaufman wants to expand new media and digital innovation as well as speak out about “the challenges and opportunities journalism faces in the 21st century,” he said in a statement.
“I am thrilled to be joining Northeastern,” he said.
