Sarah Brown

Reporter, Chronicle for Higher Education

Sarah Brown joined The Chronicle of Higher Education in 2015 and covers campus culture, including Title IX, race and diversity, and mental health. She has written about how colleges handle — and mishandle — cases 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.

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.
