Tracey A. Reeves, a former reporter and editor at The Washington Post, and currently the director of media relations at the Johns Hopkins University, has accepted an appointment as assistant vice president for Institute News & Campus Communications at the Georgia Institute of Technology.  

Reeves, who has been responsible for media relations at Johns Hopkins for the last decade, was selected for the Georgia Tech appointment after a national search. As assistant vice president, she will lead the department responsible for managing the Institute’s news production, media relations activities, campus communications and special events, social media channels, economic development and research communications, as well as leadership communications programs. She succeeds Lisa Grovenstein, who retired earlier this spring after a 34-year career of service to the state of Georgia, with more than 12 years at the Institute.

Reeves will assume her new role at Georgia Tech Sept. 1.

Reeves has been with Johns Hopkins in her current role since 2008. Prior to higher education, she was at The Washington Post serving as a staff writer, chief of the Anne Arundel and Prince George's bureaus, and assistant Maryland editor. Previously, she was a national and regional reporter for Knight-Ridder Newspapers, and a reporter for the Providence Journal and New Bedford (Mass.) Standard-Times.

She has been a Casey Journalism Center Fellow and a Knight Center for Specialized Journalism Fellow and, as a Knight-Ridder reporter, covered the U.S. Congress, federal agencies, transportation, and the military. While with Knight-Ridder, she traveled the country extensively to write about health care and children and family issues for publication in a number of Knight-Ridder newspapers. She was part of an award-winning team for Knight-Ridder that produced a series about the perils of health care among African Americans and other ethnic minorities nationwide. Reeves shared in the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service awarded to the Grand Forks (N.D.) Herald in 1998 for its coverage of the Red River Flood.

Reeves is a graduate of Illinois State University, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Mass Communications/Journalism. She is a member of the executive committee of the Association of American Universities Public Affairs Network, Council for Advancement and Support of Education, Public Relations Society of America, and the National Association of Black Journalists. 

She and her husband, Ben, currently reside in Columbia, Maryland, with their twin sons, Cameron and Matthew.
