1. Student publications are understood to be those financed by student fees and are free from censorship and advance approval of copy. Editors and managers are free to develop their own editorial policies and news coverage. An advisor serves as a resource to student staff in apprising them of copy which may result in any of the following charges: libel, indecency, undocumented allegations, and attacks on personal integrity and/or harassment. The freedom of student editors entails corollary responsibilities to abide by the canons of responsible journalism. The respective staffs of student publications have responsibility for election and removal of their own editors.
2. Editors and managers of student publications shall be protected from arbitrary suspension or removal from their respective positions solely because of editorial policy or content.
3. All student publications shall explicitly state on their masthead or flags that the opinions therein expressed are not necessarily those of the University or the student body.
