The Highlander Newspaper is committed to the pursuit of truth, the free exchange of information and ideas, and maintaining a fair and independent student voice. The Highlander exists to serve its readership, comprised of University of California, Riverside undergraduate students in particular and the local university community in general. In our pursuit of the truth, we will provide accurate information relevant to the experiences and interests of our readers. The Highlander seeks to foster an environment where student journalists learn the necessary skills to become probing, fair and critical in their writing and thought. We strive to go beyond basic reporting through vigorous investigation, analysis of the facts and creative thinking.
The Highlander is currently published each Tuesday during the academic year. First published in 1954, the Highlander remains an independent student media outlet. It was an entirely self-funded organization until 2001, when ASUCR passed a funding referendum for it. Student fees from the referendum go towards overhead and printing costs. However, the Highlander is primarily funded through its own advertising revenue.
