Pulitzer Prize Winner

Susan Goldberg
Professor of Practice, Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and at College of Global Futures

Susan Goldberg was a part of a team with the San Jose Mercury News that received the 1990 Pulitzer Prize in General News Reporting for their coverage of the October 17, 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake and its aftermath. More recently, she was editor of National Geographic (2014-2022), which was honored with three Pulitzer finalists, 10 national magazine awards and was twice named Webby Media Company of the Year (2018 and 2020). At ASU, Goldberg serves as vice dean and professor of practice, and leads new programs and strategic partnerships in Washington, D.C. She will expand ASU's presence in the nation’s capital, which provides significant educational opportunities and leverages the expertise of world-class faculty across a wide range of issue areas. She has been singled out repeatedly for her leadership, particularly around her work promoting women. She was the leadership honoree for her work uplifting women in 2020 from the International Women’s Media Foundation; has repeatedly been on the “most powerful” and “most influential” lists of women in media and in Washington; and won the Exceptional Woman in Publishing Award in 2015. In addition, Goldberg’s recent leadership accolades include landing at No. 7 on InStyle Magazine’s “Badass 50” list.
