Statement of Standards for University and College Periodicals
CASE Editor’s Forum, March 2003
The university magazine is essential to the prosperity of its institution. By documenting its vigorous culture on campus and off, the periodical engages its readers, alumni, parents, members of the local community, faculty and staff-both intellectually and emotionally, nurturing a relationship that leads to participation in the life of the institution and continued financial support.
The periodical serves its institution best when it practices what a college or university exemplifies: unfettered inquiry, judicious skepticism, and the free presentation of contending ideas. To do so respects the intelligence of a sophisticated, well-educated audience and the principle that honesty is the base on which meaningful bonds are built. Editors and writers are trained professionals who best serve their institutions when accorded the respect and freedom essential to doing their jobs.
Editors and writers will strive:
- To advance the well-being of their institutions
- To reflect and convey the fundamental principles of the institutions they represent
- To report on their institutions with candor and impartiality
- To achieve the highest journalistic and literary quality in their publications’ contents
- To maintain scrupulous standards of accuracy, fairness, editorial integrity, civility and respect for diverse viewpoints
- To work independently within agreed-upon frameworks of authority and responsibility
- To observe standards of taste and sensitivity
- To address inaccuracies or misunderstandings in a professional and expeditious manner
- To welcome ideas and criticism from readers and campus colleagues through open and professional communications
