The Chronicle of Higher Education

The Chronicle of Higher Education is the No. 1 source of news, information, and jobs for college and university faculty members and administrators.

Based in Washington, D.C., The Chronicle has more than 70 writers, editors, and international correspondents.

Online, The Chronicle is published every weekday and is the top destination for news, advice, and jobs for people in academe. The Chronicle's Web site features the complete contents of the latest issue; daily news and advice columns; thousands of current job listings; an archive of previously published content; vibrant discussion forums; and career-building tools such as online CV management, salary databases, and more.

The Chronicle's audited Web-site traffic is more than 12.8 million pages a month, seen by more than 1.9 million unique visitors.

In print, The Chronicle is published in two sections: Section A, which contains news and jobs, and The Chronicle Review, a magazine of arts and ideas. Subscribers also receive the annual Almanac of Higher Education and special reports on diversity, the academic workplace, online learning, and other topics. The Chronicle newspaper is available in print and digital formats.

The newspaper is subscribed to by more than 64,000 academics and has a total readership of more than 315,000.

The Chronicle appears weekly during the academic year, less frequently May through August and December (a total of 45 issues a year).

The Chronicle is a nine-time finalist for the National Magazine Awards, and one of its columnists was a finalist for a 2005 Pulitzer Prize. The Chronicle has also received honors from the Education Writers Association, the Society of News Design, the EPpy Awards, and the Webby Awards, among others. (Click here for a complete listing.) In 2007 The Chronicle was ranked in the 10 most credible news sources by Erdos & Morgan, a widely used survey of thought leaders in the United States. The Utne Reader that year named The Chronicle for "best political coverage" among independent newspapers.
