Sarah Bartlett, dean of the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York, has been recognized by her peers as a 21st-century news visionary.

The distinction is presented by the Business News Visionary Awards, a project that bestows the “visionary” designation on select individuals whose dedication, foresight, and talents have had a transformative impact on the journalism profession.

A profile of Bartlett and her oral history are available at and will be featured in a commemorative book to be published in 2022.

A former member of the editorial teams at Fortune, BusinessWeek, The New York Times, and Oxygen Media, Bartlett has served as dean of the CUNY graduate J-School since January 2014. During her tenure, the school’s enrollment has grown by more than 40%, and more than half of those currently attending are students of color.

Bartlett recently announced that she will retire from CUNY at the end of the academic year in June 2022.
