SPJ Faces Warning from QU
Quinnipiac University has threatened to revoke the campus chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) after their connection with the student-run independent newspaper The QUAD News.
Daniel Brown wrote to SPJ that if they continued to interact with The Quad News, they may lose their status as a school-recognized organization.
SPJ executives responded with a letter to Quinnipiac president John Lahey.
“While we understand that Quinnipiac is a private university and that administrators have broad powers to control activities on campus, we hope that you will realize that banning a student organization for actions that are not only legal but well-intentioned would send a message across the country that the University leadership does not support the principles of free speech, free press and free association that are outlined in the First Amendment,” they said.
