Sarah Brown

Senior Editor
The Chronicle of Higher Education

Sarah Brown joined The Chronicle of Higher Education in 2015. As of 2022, she is the news editor, leading daily-coverage decisions and overseeing the reporting internship program.

In more than six years as a reporter, Sarah wrote about Title IX and colleges’ handling of sexual assault and harassment, whether higher ed is really committed to racial equity, and how mental-health struggles are derailing students, academically and otherwise. In addition to campus culture, she covered enrollment challenges, financial turmoil, leadership controversies, and the connection between education and health.

Sarah’s bylines have appeared in The New York Times and other newspapers, and she makes regular broadcast-media appearances for The Chronicle, including on C-SPAN, St. Louis Public Radio, Wisconsin Public Radio, WBUR (Boston), and KUOW (Seattle).

Sarah studied journalism and political science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, but she likes to say that she really graduated from The Daily Tar Heel, where she was a reporter and editor all four years.
