To support a Knight Visiting Lecturer at the Shorenstein Center

This program matches up recognized national news leaders with their university of choice for a one-year fellowship, during which time they’ll research and envision the future of quality journalism.  In 2006, former Los Angeles Times editor John Carroll became the first Knight Visiting Lecturer. At the Harvard’s Shorenstein Center, he is researching, writing, teaching and speaking out publicly about how journalism excellence is achievable in today’s fast-changing world.
