The Campus Press: Freedom and Responsibility.
Duscha, Julius; Fischer, Thomas
This document investigates the collegiate press. Part one--The Campus Press--observes the development, expectations and present status of the campus press. Conclusions indicate the need for an independent student newspaper. Part two reviews the law and the campus press, particularly legal distinctions between public and private colleges and universities and between campus press and public press, legal consequences for three ways of operating a university newspaper, responsibilities of the campus press, consequences of selection of staff, and legal consequences of using the institution's name. Appendices for part one include a 28-item bibliography, the University of California agreement, and articles of incorporation of the Daily Californian. Appendices for part two examine limitations of free speech and review important cases. (MJM)
