Jill Geisler is Loyola University's first Bill Plante Chair of Leadership and Media Integrity, according to a news release from the university. Geisler, who worked at Poynter as a faculty member for 16 years, now writes a column for the Columbia Journalism Review and regularly coaches journalists in newsrooms around the country. She's also the author of "Work Happy: What Great Bosses Know."

From the release:

According to Geisler, “Three things made this opportunity irresistible: The School of Communication’s focus on media integrity in the digital age, the chance to integrate leadership skills and values into an already strong curriculum, and Loyola’s commitment to social justice. Even as I continue to coach managers in media organizations, I’ll be helping grow tomorrow’s leaders in Loyola’s classrooms.”

Also in the release, Dean Don Heider said that the school is delighted that Geisler is joining them.

“She is one of a kind with her background in journalism and experience teaching management and ethics. She will bring much to the school.”
