A small number of universities are partnering with news organizations when they hire new faculty. The joint-hire approach allows faculty to teach while also being reporters or columnists for media outlets. "If college can't be experimental and have a little flexibility, then nobody can," said Donald F. Gatzke, dean of the University of Texas at Arlington School of Architecture, which recently took on the joint hire of a professor who will also be an architecture critic for the Dallas Morning News. "I think it's going to be very synergistic."
