Stu­dents and col­leagues of North­eastern Uni­ver­sity jour­nalism pro­fessor Nicholas Daniloff are used to his hands-​​on style of teaching – whether it involves dressing up as philoso­pher Immanuel Kant for a lesson on mass media in a demo­c­ratic society, or con­ducting a mock press con­fer­ence in his ethics class.

A former for­eign cor­re­spon­dent for United Press Inter­na­tional and U.S. News & World Report, Daniloff brings into the class­room more than 30 years of expe­ri­ence as a working journalist.

Nick Daniloff is of an era when being a jour­nalist was not defined by having a ver­i­fied Twitter account,” said John Guil­foil, a former stu­dent of Daniloff who is now deputy press sec­re­tary to Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. “He comes from the age of jour­nalism when it was a prac­ticed art form, and he teaches it like a prac­ticed art form.”

His work to pre­pare young jour­nal­ists to lead news orga­ni­za­tions into the future has earned Daniloff the New Eng­land Jour­nalism Edu­cator of the Year Award from the New Eng­land News­paper and Press Asso­ci­a­tion (NENPA). He is the first member of the North­eastern School of Jour­nalism to be pre­sented with the award.
