A meeting to discuss The Collegian’s financial future has been postponed to April 10, according to media, communications and journalism professor Dr. Bradley Hart.
The meeting was originally scheduled for April 3. The rescheduled meeting is slated for 10:30 a.m., but the location has not been determined, Hart said in an email Monday afternoon.
A group of media, communications and journalism faculty who make up the Collegian Task Force has met once before to discuss this publication’s finances.
Collegian Financial Manager Cheryl Carlson is expected to provide an update on the student newspaper’s financial status. And the task force is expected to make recommendations on ways to move forward with funding The Collegian.
The meeting comes on the heels of 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.
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.
