Journalism faculty will discuss The Collegian’s future on Tuesday

A meeting is planned Tuesday morning to discuss The Collegian’s financial future.

A group of media, communications and journalism faculty who make up the Collegian Task Force will meet in Library Room 3212 from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

Collegian Financial Manager Cheryl Carlson will provide an update on the student newspaper’s financial status. The task force will make recommendations on moving forward with funding The Collegian.

The meeting comes on the heels of reported financial strain to The Collegian’s operation. Earlier this semester, this publication reported that it has been facing a decrease in advertising revenue and a depleting fund reserve.

The task force has met to discuss ways to fund the publication. A student fee also funds The Collegian but it has not risen in several years. A Collegian Governing Board has also been revived in order to discuss Collegian matters.
