Princeton dean accepts role with Huffington Post religion site

    A deal between the Huffington Post and AOL has a Princeton dean leaving his university position to pursue work with the site.

    Paul Raushenbush, associate dean of religious life at Princeton, will lead HuffPost Religion.

    The baptist minister served as dean since 2002, the Princetonian reports, and last year accepted a joint position at the Huffington Post after approaching editor-in-chief Arianna Huffington about founding the religion section of the site.

    Raushenbush will now be a full-time senior editor at the site, which is now part of the AOL Huffington Post Media Group.
