Brett Orzechowski, Assistant Professor of Management and Media, joined the faculty in the School of Business and Justice Studies in 2015 after serving as CEO/Publisher of The Connecticut Mirror/Connecticut News Project, Inc., a public policy news organization in Hartford and Washington, D.C. He previously taught at Quinnipiac University with a particular emphasis on reporting stories using nonlinear, interactive digital media, and public affairs reporting with a focus on data and analytics.

Orzechowski was also co-creator of the Media Innovation Collaborative (MIC) at Quinnipiac, an interdisciplinary effort by the Schools of Business and Communications designed to equip students with multimedia and entrepreneurial skills. During its formative stages, the MIC incubator fostered 26 media-based businesses with 17 incorporated, of which six secured external start-up capital.

He is the author of a forthcoming book examining New York State's Freedom of Information Law, scheduled for publication by Syracuse University Press, and will focus his future professional and scholarly efforts on the entrepreneurial business climate in upstate New York.
