Daniel Golden is an American journalist, working as a senior editor for ProPublica. He was previously senior editor at Conde Nast's now-defunct Portfolio magazine, and a managing editor for Bloomberg News.
As Deputy Bureau Chief at the Boston bureau of the Wall Street Journal he received the Pulitzer Prize for Beat Reporting in 2004 for a series of articles on admissions preferences in elite American universities, specifically relating to the enormous advantages enjoyed by more affluent white students, and the use of development cases (admissions based on potential donations). Golden is also a previous recipient of the 2003 George Polk Award for Educational Journalism.
He holds a B.A. from Harvard College.
He is the author of The Price of Admission: How America's Ruling Class Buys Its Way into Elite Colleges—and Who Gets Left Outside the Gates. He is currently working on a book, to be published by Henry Holt and Company, about National Security and Higher Education.
