The Chronicle of Higher Education

The No. 1 News Source For Higher Education and Intellectual Life

The Chronicle of Higher Education provides the academic community with an independent, global hub for news, sophisticated analysis, opinion, and engagement. It also serves a broader intellectual community for whom ideas and learning are paramount. By providing trusted reporting and provocative commentary, The Chronicle enables these communities to act, serve, and lead with intelligence.

Each week -- in print, online at, and on the iPad -- The Chronicle is read by more college and university faculty members and administrators than any other source in higher education.

The Chronicle has been published since 1966 and is headquartered in Washington, D.C. with an editorial staff of more than 75 reporters, editors, visual artists, and Web producers, plus 15 correspondents stationed around the world.

Already in 2011, The Chronicle has been nominated for two National Magazine Awards for Digital Media and won a record seven prizes from the Education Writers Association.
