                                    The Daily Northwestern’s Coverage of Campus Events

                                    November 12, 2019
                                    Journalism is under assault in a variety of spheres. But my hope is that we at Northwestern can model ways in which a community can promote freedom of the press while also demonstrating how we conduct healthy and respectful debate.

                                    It is essential that we hold each other accountable for creating a culture where community members feel comfortable coming forward to report discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct to the Office of Equity, and where we make clear to one another that this behavior is not tolerated.

                                    August 26, 2019
