Welcome to #CronkiteNation! More than 14,000 alumni comprise the country’s strongest media network.
Hello #CronkiteGlobal alumni!
We are building on something special. Founding Dean of the Cronkite School, Chris Callahan, built something special in 2006 and now, under the leadership of Dean Battinto L. Batts Jr. we are building on what makes Cronkite Nation unique.
The Cronkite School at Arizona State University has a contemporary building in the heart of the fifth largest city in America in one of the fastest growing regions of the U.S. The School is equipped with state-of-the-art digital technology and tools for students tell stories and share important information. As impressive as that is, it is the people inside of the building that make the Cronkite School a truly remarkable place to learn and innovate. We are proud of our fantastic faculty and staff and proud, of our fabulous and talented students and alumni. Indeed, life after Cronkite continues and with many successes!
Our #CronkiteGlobal alumni network spans eight decades and as of 2022, is 14,000 strong and growing. Cronkite Global is made up of media and communication professionals who work in news, sports, production and entertainment. We work in public relations and digital marketing. We are CEOs, vice presidents, attorneys, teachers, public affairs and development officers, entrepreneurs and creatives. We work in large companies, small companies, higher education, law enforcement, nonprofits or lead our own businesses and we work in many other fields, too. We are proud of all Cronkite Global alumni and are committed to helping them along their life journey.
As the first director of alumni engagement and services for the Cronkite School and a Cronkite graduate myself, two questions that I will always ask fellow alumni, “How are you doing?” and “How can we help?” My goal is to create programs that will help you grow in your career or address career-related issues you might be experiencing. We aim to provide exciting opportunities for you to engage with the School through events, programs or simply by getting involved.
