The College Student Beat

Inside Higher Ed, the leading national daily online publication about the complex and compelling world of higher education, seeks an enterprising reporter to cover student life. This job provides an opportunity to examine contested and provocative terrain, covering issues such as campus tensions over politics, race, gender, sex assault, academic integrity, Greek life, career preparation, as well as the debate about the appropriate role of intercollegiate athletics.

Our reporters mix beat reporting, analysis and creative approaches to telling stories. Candidates should be able to juggle multiple articles at once, and should like to dig deeply and to learn. Candidates should have at least two years of intensive reporting experience (which may have been on a college daily).

Inside Higher Ed publishes breaking news, features, commentary, blogs and other content (including audio and video) each weekday, and has established itself as a fresh, authoritative, independent voice for its 1.8 million unique monthly users and 115,000+ daily e-mail subscribers.

Inside Higher Ed offers competitive pay, good benefits (including heavily subsidized health, dental and life insurance premiums), and three weeks' vacation. Centrally located in downtown D.C. Interested applicants should send a cover letter, resume, and five strong clips to or by mail to:
