Tom Robbins Named CUNY Investigative Journalist in Residence

Tom Robbins, who left The Village Voice in January, has been named the first Investigative Journalist in Residence at CUNY’s Graduate School of Journalism.

Robbins’ duties at CUNY include teaching a new course that will center on producing stories for New York’s ethnic press and being a resource for students and faculty.

The new position poses an exciting challenge, said Robbins:

Good investigative reporting is critical medicine for a great metropolis, and I look forward to working with the terrific team Steve Shepard has assembled at CUNY’s Journalism School to help develop a new corps of diggers for the truth.

It’s a nice addition for CUNY, but can you imagine Robbins as a teacher? Those students are in for some tough love.
