EVANSTON, ILL. -- Three faculty members will help support students of the Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications at Northwestern University as they prepare for career-building activities.

“The success of our students in securing amazing jobs that become transformational careers is one of the reasons Medill is so prominent in the journalism and marketing industries today,” said Medill Dean Charles Whitaker. “These faculty members will help our current students prepare to be the leaders of tomorrow in their workplaces.”

Neil Golden will serve as senior lecturer and director of experiential learning and employer engagement for Medill’s IMC graduate programs.

She will also teach journalism courses in the summer and fall. Robinson-English had previously been a strategic communications consultant and has been a reporter at many national and local news outlets.

Tracy Van Moorlehem (BSJ91) will be a senior lecturer and director of Journalism Residency/employer engagement. Van Moorlehem most recently served as deputy metro editor at the Chicago Tribune. In that role, she coordinated local news coverage, newsroom logistics and the hiring and training of residents and interns, including those from Medill’s Journalism Residency undergraduate program.
