As an important resource for UR, the Campus Times needs input from the community.

The CT takes great strides to promote journalistic ideals. Editors and writers work hard to get balanced and correct information by seeking a variety of sources in their work. The condition of the newspaper hinges on the quality of the interchange between the CT’s audience and the CT staff, especially when a large portion of this readership plays a role in our content. An important part of this mutual relationship is that individuals have the ability to voice their concerns to the newspaper, either by writing letters to the editor or through participating in the CT Community Dialogue.

Though the CT constantly focuses on maintaining high standards, it is ultimately a student-run organization. The CT staff is composed of a variety of students who do not publish the newspaper out of self-serving careerism nor who are distant observers removed from the community on which they report. However, the CT still holds itself accountable for what it publishes – the CT will not use its status as a student organization to excuplate itself from its mistakes.

Rather, our varied background further underscores the fact that the CT convenes to serve UR. Therefore, this publication is governed both by basic standards of journalistic credibilty and oversight from its readers – the CT is only as good as the community it serves.

Due to this dedication for service, the CT wants to provide students, faculty, staff and readers an avenue for feedback. The CT Community Dialogue is a way to ask questions, voice concerns and raise issues. We invite all members of UR to attend and further improve our publication.
