The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Hussman School of Journalism and Media has hired Nikole Hannah-Jones, a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times investigative journalist, as a faculty member the News and Observer reported.

As the Knight Chair in Race and Investigative Journalism, she will work with students to develop investigative projects, provide industry advice and focus on the “big questions” in journalism.

“This is the story of a leader returning to a place that transformed her life and career trajectory,” Susan King, dean of UNC Hussman said. “Giving back is part of Nikole’s DNA, and now one of the most respected investigative journalists in America will be working with our students on projects that will move their careers forward and ignite critically important conversations.”
