Western Oregon's: The Journal

  • The Western Oregon Journal, published for use by Western students, faculty and staff, is private property. A single copy of the Journal is free from newsstands. Unauthorized removal of multiple copies will be considered theft and is prosecutable.

Mission Statement

  • The Western Oregon Journal has at the heart of its mission publishing news, information, and opinion articles for and about student, faculty, and administration activities, interests, and policies; maintaining a high ethical standard with regard to personal and legal rights, responsibilities, and above all else, accuracy; providing a public forum that encourages and prints free and responsible expression of student opinion and presents well-balanced, locally researched issues of broader student interests; striving for a high level of competency in the technical aspects of writing, including grammar, spelling, clarity, and precision; welcoming diversity and increasing the scope and depth of its coverage in order to heighten mutual understanding and awareness throughout the entire campus community; and fostering the development of professional journalism at Western Oregon University in light of the campus’s lack of a formal journalism program.
  • The Western Oregon Journal is published every Friday
