Publications Policy

The goal of all student publications is to give students the opportunity to develop and polish skills in communication, to express opinions, and to inform, enlighten, and amuse the University community. University support of student publications does not restrict freedom of speech, but does imply honesty, responsibility, and sensitivity in writing and editing.

Under University Guidelines for University-Sponsored Publications, all publications must conform to all applicable state and federal law, may not be inconsistent with their setting in a Catholic University, and must include honest, accurate, and fair reporting.

In the rare case of dispute between administration and student editors, the University Publications Board will be convened to review the relevant issues and make a recommendation to the Vice President for Student Life.

A complete copy of this policy, publication guidelines, and procedures for board review is available at the Office of the Vice President for Student Life, and the office of Student Involvement.
