Section VI. Student Publications and Media

A. Communication Board Policy

1. The Communication Board sets policy for the student news media under the jurisdiction of ASISU. Currently the Extra is the only recognized news media under the Communication Board.

2. No student or group of students should be given an opportunity to use the University media as a vehicle for personal profit or glorification. The media has the freedom to report and to comment on policies or actions of any division of the University’s administration so long as that report or comment does not become involved in personalities or qualifications of members of the faculty or administration. Within the student community, the newspaper should be encouraged to employ the same techniques and standards of review and criticism of student affairs as employed by professional newspapers in covering activities of their communities.

3. Faculty and staff are encouraged to cooperate with the student newspaper reporters.
