Award-Winning Journalist to be Honored at Fall Commencement
Submitted by Dave Isgur
Approximately 150 students will receive their degrees at Fall Commencement.
Greenhouse's coverage of the high court has earned her numerous awards, including a Pulitzer Prize for beat reporting in 1998, the American Political Science Association's Carey McWilliams Award in 2002 for "a major journalistic contribution to our understanding of politics," and the John Chancellor Award for Excellence in Journalism from the Annenberg School for Communication of the University of Pennsylvania in 2004. Also in 2004, Harvard's Kennedy School honored her with the Goldsmith Career Award for Excellence in Journalism. In 2008 the nonpartisan Constitution Project presented her with its annual award for constitutional commentary.
Currently, Greenhouse is the Knight Distinguished Journalist in Residence and the Joseph M. Goldstein Lecturer in Law at Yale Law School.
The Fall Commencement ceremony is for undergraduate and graduate students who complete their degree requirements in September or January but cannot attend the University's traditional Commencement ceremony in May. The Fall Commencement ceremony was introduced in 1996 to provide these students with a formal ceremony that celebrates their academic accomplishments.
