UPDATE: Morgan State U in Baltimore receives national censure after removing college media adviser from her post

July 28, 2009

I’ve been helping College Media Advisers as an adviser advocate this summer with a case at Morgan State University in Baltimore. The college’s media adviser, Denise Brown, was removed from her job following a series of stories and editorials written by her students and non-staff freelancers that were published in the student-run newspaper, The Spokesman.

In a letter sent last week to Morgan State President Earl Richardson, CMA, the national professional organization for media advisers to which I belong, condemned Morgan State “as oppressive of students’ rights to free expression and hostile toward those professionals it employs to advise the student press.”

CMA’s notice of censure can be found here. Outlets covering this story have been listed below. I’ll update the list as additional outlets pick up the story.
