Anticlimactic: Following Rejections, J-School Just Chooses Interim Dean

j-schoolIf J schools have heart strings, then UC Berkeley’s have been pulled, stretched and tangled far past the point of breaking. After having one suitor icily retract her acceptance, and then a year later regathering its pride upon receiving a massive applicant pool [1], only to have the three front runners [2] bail at the last minute [3], Berkeley’s Graduate school of Journalism probably exhaled palmward a few times to check for institutional halitosis. After all this, on Thursday they finally settled [4] on Neil Henry, who (ironically?) hadn’t actually applied [5]. Somehow this seems like yet another burn; we’re just not sure to whom.

Still, the school shouldn’t have too much trouble swallowing any residual pride; Henry, who has served as the interim dean since his predecessor’s departure, is most certainly a competent candidate. An award-winning journalist, Henry worked as a Washington Post reporter for 16 years before becoming a Berkeley faculty member in 1993. As interim dean, he collaborated with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, raising over $5 million for the school during his time at UC Berkeley. His term will last five years. The Clog sends its congratulations to Professor Henry and the J-School.
