The Clerk launched online in April 2012 with the goal of providing timely, aggressive news coverage of the Bi-College community, completely independent of the institution and student government. We believe that an independent student press is important for holding the institution accountable, connecting students to their community, and passing on skills for critically engaging society and government. A strong and conscientious student press is key to a more transparent and accountable educational environment.
Our mission is to create a community forum for all stakeholders (students, faculty, staff and administration) to discuss issues that affect us. By encouraging participation and promoting student interest in journalism, we hope to enrich students’ involvement and understanding of the community.
