Julie Patel Liss, Faculty Advisor

Julie Patel Liss is the faculty advisor of the University Times and the professor of the UT class, which produces the Community News section of the University Times.

Julie teaches journalism courses and conducts investigative reporting projects. Julie spent ten years at daily newspapers and worked as an investigative journalist for several years, including a stint in public radio. Her goal is to help her students succeed in life and in journalism, and to give them opportunities to produce engaging journalism that makes a difference.

Julie has earned more than a dozen awards and honors for her reporting over the years, including the 2013 "Deals for Developers" series; the 2014 "Hobbled IRS" project; and a 3-part project on dark money nonprofits. Her coverage of Florida regulators' cozy dealings with utility officials was credited in part for a shake up of the utility board. She was one of two reporters who worked on the Sun Sentinel's 2007 "Mortgage Meltdown" series; was the reporter for Mercury News' "Uprooted" story and documentary, which won a 2008 national Emmy Award; and contributed to the Merc's 2006 "Tainted Trials, Stolen Justice" project.
