The Journal’s editorial board and business office promises to you, our readers, we will recommit ourselves to our vision statement:
“To consistently provide the Webster University and Webster Groves communities with the most current and contextual information using both print and multimedia, while serving as a learning platform for our staff and a forum for our readers.”
For the remainder of the academic year I will be serving as The Journal’s interim Editor-in-Chief. I have worked for The Journal for two years, holding the roles of news editor and senior editor before recently being named Editor-in-Chief.
I am confident the time I spent in these positions will prove beneficial to the paper’s quality and our goal to be a crucial learning platform for our staff.
Two years ago, a former editorial board and business office established The Journal’s vision statement.
I was on that editorial board and helped craft that statement. The Journal’s current editorial board including myself hold that statement to be our vision as well.
For The Journal, this means in the coming months we will reestablish our online presence by providing additional online content and multimedia, we will strive to better cover Webster Groves and the college and finally, we will strive to provide news, coverage and commentary on all things Webster University.
We plan to spend the coming months prepping for the next semester and hope you will be open to giving us some feedback along the way.
We would like to make this commitment to you, our readers, because your trust and readership is paramount to what we do. Thank you, as always, for reading and we hope you will look to us for your Webster news.
I look forward to stepping up to the challenge of leading this publication.
