Journalist

Liz Robbins, a 19-year veteran reporter of The New York Times, writes freelance and teaches at Columbia Journalism School. Most recently, she covered immigration for the Metro section. She focused on the impact of the Trump administration’s policies on immigrant communities in New York, breaking news that enabled 5,000 young immigrants to stave off deportation. Robbins began her journalism career as a sportswriter, covering the N.B.A., Olympics and tennis. She wrote a critically acclaimed narrative nonfiction book on the New York City marathon, A Race Like No Other: 26.2 Miles Through the Streets of New York (Harper 2008). She recently took a buyout to concentrate on teaching. She is leading a graduate seminar entitled, “Gender and Migration” in Spring 2020.

She has been a faculty member of The School of The New York Times since 2017, teaching immigration, sports and writing courses. In Fall 2019, she led a module for the inaugural Gap Year program on the New York City marathon, guiding her students to cover all aspects of the city-wide race. Robbins graduated from Cornell University with an honors degree in history, writing her thesis on education and rhetoric in the Italian Renaissance. She cycles to save her knees and enjoys cooking in her spare time.
