The Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism seeks applications year-round from professionals who want to be considered as a visiting professor in the Center’s Visiting Business Journalism Professor Program. All applications must be submitted online.

The Donald W. Reynolds Foundation Visiting Business Journalism Professors Program is launching its third year, and will assign professors to two  campuses for the spring semester 2014, starting in January. Those selected will teach business journalism classes during a semester in residence at one of these schools:  Oklahoma University, California State University, Fullerton

The program supports accredited journalism schools in launching classes to teach business journalism. Grants are awarded to schools across the U.S. that do not have an established presence in business journalism but aspire to have one. The universities commit to teach classes two that train students how to cover businesses and the economy.

Journalists with experience as business reporters for print, digital or broadcast media are good candidates.

The program is administered through the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism headquartered at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, under the direction of Reynolds Center President Andrew Leckey.

Visiting professors are paid and are asked to:

  • Commit full time to a full semester at a participating university;
  • Teach two classes in business journalism during their appointed semester in residence;
  • Participate in the Reynolds Center’s webinars on important financial topics;
  • Establish a mentoring relationship with a local news outlet or business journalist in the university's community;
  • Help create at least one partnership with a media organization in the community that will publish stories generated by  students in the business journalism classes.
  • Contribute at least one article for use on the Reynolds Center’s website,

Visiting professors will be provided with dedicated office space in the journalism building at the campus to which they are assigned and have IT and administrative support. They will become part of the Reynolds Foundation network and receive support throughout the semester in the form of class outlines and materials as well as guidance and mentoring.

Applicants also are asked to provide a statement of professional qualifications, including experience in business journalism and teaching, as well as two professional letters of reference. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
