Michael Stechschulte, the current editor of The Michigan Times, UM-Flint's student newspaper, is apparently getting the cold shoulder from university administrators. He writes:
Two weeks ago today, the Blue Ribbon Athletic Commission received a report from a consulting group on the possibility of varsity athletics here on campus. Despite two weeks of trying, The Michigan Times has yet to get a copy of that report. We’d really love to know, as I’m sure you would, whether we can soon be cheering for our school, but I suppose that will have to wait for the chancellor’s big press release.Michael, you have my sympathies. Administrators often promote openness and dialogue, except when it comes to topics they'd just rather not discuss. Give the Student Press Law Center a call and find out which meetings you're legally entitled to attend. Don't give up the fight.
Other than being stonewalled trying get that report, we’ve been locked out of provost meetings, student judicial hearings, staff council meetings...you name it. If it’s of interest to students, it’s being blocked.
