Covering the campus: the history of The chronicle of higher education, 1966-1993
In its nearly 30-year history, The Chronicle of Higher Education has become recognized internationally as the premier news publication in higher education. Covering the Campus, the first comprehensive history of The Chronicle, melds a quarter-century of higher education and journalism milestones. As the newspaper gained its editorial footing, Vietnam War protests were gaining momentum nationwide, placing one of journalism's most dramatic contemporary reporting challenges on college and university campuses. The Chronicle has covered the campus as no other medium, from Kent State to Tiananmen Square. It has discussed frankly many issues in the higher education community, including leadership, campus race relations, gender-equity, multiculturalism, and AIDS. The publication has led journalism's investigations into college athletics scandals, and it has infused lighter and artistic touches into its pages with such features as "Marginalia" and "End Paper". Covering the Campus provides a record of the establishment of The Chronicle, a detailed discussion of its development; its news gathering, advertising, and marketing operations; contributions of its key personnel; a discussion of the editorial philosophy; a review of its contributions to specialty journalism; an overview of its coverage of major issues in higher education; and a description of its potential future roles in communications.
