The Chronicle won four awards this week from two news associations in recognition of work published in 2011.
In the Education Writers Association's National Awards for Education Reporting, two awards went to members of The Chronicle's staff. Goldie Blumenstyk won first prize in beat reporting in the print (small market) category, for a series of articles on the business of higher education, notably an in-depth look at the jockeying among several universities for a new campus in New York City.
The association also awarded a special citation in the special-interest, institutional, and trade publications category to Jack Stripling, Andrea Fuller, and Josh Keller for their work on "Executive Compensation: What Private College Presidents Make," an annual report from The Chronicle.
In the Society for News Design's Best of Digital Design competition, The Chronicle received two awards of excellence. Josh Keller and Alex Richards were recognized for "Where Does Your Freshman Class Come From?," a project featuring an online interactive tool that allows users to explore how students migrate from state to state and college to college in pursuit of their degrees. The society also recognized Josh Keller and Andrea Fuller for their work on the "Executive Compensation at Private Colleges" report.
