Kopenhaver, Lillian Lodge; Click, J. William
Offered as a concise source of information and thought on the role, ethics, and responsibilities of the college student publication adviser, this publication discusses the major points of relevant codes of ethics and adds information about contemporary journalistic practices. The first section discusses the adviser as journalist and deals with the topics of libel and obscenity; news, depth, and advocacy reporting; reporting in yearbooks and magazines; editing and opinion pieces; technological and business implications; and graphic design. A section on the adviser as educator suggests several models of advising, as well as procedures on recruiting and developing staff. A final section outlines standards for advisers and recommends maintenance of those standards through various forms of continuing education. The ethical codes referred to and a list of professional organizations for college publication advisers are appended. (AEA)
