The City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Journalism has named former Village Voice reporter Tom Robbins to the newly-created position of Investigative Journalist in Residence:
“Our students and faculty will benefit tremendously from having him in our midst,” said Stephen B. Shepard, the Journalism School’s founding dean. Robbins will serve as a general resource to the students and faculty and teach an investigative reporting course in the Urban Reporting concentration, which is overseen by Professor Sarah Bartlett. The new course will focus on generating investigative stories for the city’s community and ethnic press, as part of the School’s ongoing commitment to bolstering that segment of the city’s media industry.
Robbins ended his long tenure at the Voice in January.
