Cronkite Endowment Board of Trustees

The Cronkite Endowment Board of Trustees was created in 1983 to support the Cronkite School. The board is composed of top media leaders from across Phoenix, the nation’s fifth-largest city, and from around the Valley. Editors and publishers of newspapers, magazines and digital media outlets, general managers of television and radio stations, public relations executives and other industry leaders all serve as members. They advise the dean and support students through mentorships, internships and portfolio reviews, among other efforts.

Philanthropy in Journalism

In early 2012, journalists, philanthropists and community leaders from around the country gathered at Arizona State University to discuss the role of philanthropy in the future of accountability journalism.
