The Brookhaven Courier, the official student publication at Brookhaven College, provides channels for campus communications, affords outlets for student expression, records campus activities, and provides a practical training ground in print and digital journalism, including writing, editing, advertising, and web and social media maintenance.
With this purpose in mind, college officials are not permitted to review copy prior to distribution for censorship purposes; nor may they remove editors or advisors because of student, faculty, administrative or public disapproval of editorial decisions.
