Meredith Clark has been named the founding director of the Center for Communications, Media Innovation and Social Change in the College of Arts, Media and Design at Northeastern University in Boston. Dr. Clark will hold the rank of associate professor.

Dr. Clark’s work focuses on ‘Reparative Journalism,’ the concepts and practices of assessing and addressing the harm that media has done to marginalized communities. She is a former print journalist for the Tallahassee Democrat and the Raleigh News & Observer. She is an expert in critical race theory, social media, and journalism.

“I am completely dedicated to doing things that have an impact outside of the classroom, university, and geographic community, and am excited to see how far that vision can stretch,” Dr. Clark said about her new role at Northeastern University.

“The College of Arts, Media and Design is excited to establish the new Center for Communication, Media Innovation and Social Change,” says dean Elizabeth Hudson. “As a community, we are dedicated to fostering important conversations regarding race, ethnicity, and activism. We believe with renowned scholar and educator Meredith Clark as the founding leader for this Center, we can work together to create a better and more equitable future.”
