Dr. Riley Coverage: Breaking News, Features and Investigations

January 20, 2020

In September of 2019, I was part of a team that broke national news about a Black dean who resigned after Breitbart News published a story about his past tweets, which were critical of systemic racism and American nationalism. The story had about 300,000 page views and was picked up by The Chronicle of Higher Education and the New York Times, which were based off our continued coverage of protests throughout the Fall semester. In October, a FOIA request filed by my staff reporter under my guidance revealed that Dr. Riley reached a settlement with the University the same day that the Breitbart story was published. Below are links to stories related to Riley's resignation and administrative turnover.
