What I learned about community journalism from my time at the ‘Prince’

“A student journalist’s incentives, much like those of any local reporter, tether them to truth-seeking and fairness.

Mental health matters. We should act like it.

“I call on each of you — student leaders, professors, parents. Cancel meetings. Roll back expectations for your student organizations. Exempt your students from the final exam. We are people first, students, professors, administrators second. We should praise one another when we hold true to that fact.”
