Newspaper Readership Program
The face of this program is the daily distribution of 200 copies of the New York Times and 175 copies of USA Today on campus for students. These have ambient value – adding to the culture at NKU. But they also are available for classroom use and both USA Today and the Times have vigorous classroom resources available (see Democracy Square LIVE! and see these sites)
The Readership Program also provides free access to the Associated Press web-based feed for state, national and international news. This is available to any NKU faculty member for academic use, and can be a useful teaching tool. Contact SHCCE intern Jeff Steller at email@example.com if you would like to open an account.
The Collegiate Readership Program is an integral part of both civic engagement and service learning on NKU’s campus. To read more about the program click here.
A key use of the newspapers are for faculty-facilitated dialogues. Throughout the semester these Democracy Square LIVE! events will explore a variety of current events. If you would like to host one of these, contact SHCCE intern Stacey Barnes at firstname.lastname@example.org. And we encourage your students to attend.
