Journalism today--like almost every other profession--has been revolutionized by technology. And just as the workplace has changed, so too must the teaching spaces in which the next generation of professionals will be trained. When renovating their campuses to meet these 21st century needs, many administrators will be tempted simply to bulldoze old buildings. Sometimes that's the wisest course. But sometimes the past has a role to play. In professions like journalism, it's important not to lose sight of the storied tradition that connects today's students to the core tenets of print and broadcast journalism. Certainly, that was one of the guiding principles when the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism set out to revamp the former home of the "New York Herald Tribune" in midtown Manhattan. Its goal was to create a 21st century learning facility within the confines of a 90-year-old building--and bring the profession's past, present, and future together for the benefit of the school's journalists in training.
