Students may use university resources to develop publications or media as a forum for the exchange of ideas and information. UHV encourages students to create, produce, and distribute publications that foster the free exchange of ideas and information. The only restrictions that are placed on student publications are that:
- They clearly indicate they are not official publications of the university and do not represent policies and opinions of the university or its staff, and
- They adhere to standard journalistic criteria by not engaging in libel or deliberate disseminations of false information.
Students who wish to produce and distribute a publication must obtain permission from the Department of Student Life. The university will also provide facilities and staffing support appropriate to the type and nature of the publication as is determined feasible by the Department of Student Life.
