The Phillipian Charter

The Phillipian is an entirely student-run uncensored publication. It has a faculty advisor, but the student editorial board makes all publication and business decisions. The Phillipian combined its 1950’s charter with the Quill and Scroll Foundation’s Student Press Rights Position to create the following operating principles: 1) The Phillipian strives to maintain professional standards of accuracy, objectivity and fairness at all times. 2) Staff members have the right to report on and editorialize about all topics, events or issues, including those unpopular or controversial. 3) The Phillipian will not publish anything obscene, libelous, or detrimental to the immediate material and physical stability of the school. 4) The paper shall not be subjected to prior restraint, review or censorship. 5) Staff members have the obligation to learn and observe the legal and ethical responsibilities expected of them as practicing journalists. 6) The Editor in Chief assumes total responsibility for his/her publication
