Report of Regents' Commission to Advise the Board on How to Separate the Student Publications at the University of Maryland from the University.
Maryland Univ., College Park.
On August 15, 1970 the Board of Regents adopted a resolution favoring incorporation of student publications so that the University of Maryland would no longer be the publisher, and recommended that a study be undertaken of the ways the separation could be implemented. In cooperation with the Department of Journalism, the Commission conducted a survey of student attitudes toward student publications, contacted other institutions which had created independent student publications, met with administrators, and discussed the issue with student government heads and student publication editors. This paper considers the problem, the 10 publications concerned, staff selection, current publication status, and arrangements elsewhere before offering a series of recommendations. The Commission believes that while student publications can be published independently, they must remain a part of the University community. Thus, they deserve financial assistance if, after good faith efforts, they cannot cover legitimate expenses with revenues. (JS)
