The Spectator

Editorial policy

The Spectator is written and edited by students of UW-Eau Claire, and they are solely responsible for its editorial policy and content.

Editorials, opinion pieces, columns, cartoons and letters in The Spectator reflect the opinion of the writer and does not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of The Spectator or the rest of its staff.

The editorial board generally comprises the editor-in-chief, managing editor, Currents editor, chief copy editor, News editor, Op/Ed Editor and Sports editor but may include other members of the editorial staff.

Students, faculty and staff members are invited to write letters to the editor to express their views on public issues and other matters of concern or to respond to editorials or other opinions in the newspaper. Letter writers are not allowed to respond to attacks on their letters. Letters should be typed or written legibly and include a name with signature, address and phone number. Students should include their year in school and major. The Spectator reserves the right to edit, shorten or withhold letters. Letters should be 300 words or fewer. Letters will be published in their entirety online. Email letters to Emilee Wentland [email protected]

The Spectator intends for comments to be used to foster healthy, thought-provoking discussion. Comments are expected to adhere to our standards and to be respectful and constructive. As such, we do not permit the use of profanity, foul language, personal attacks or the use of language that might be interpreted as libelous. Comments are reviewed and must be approved by a moderator to ensure that they meet these standards.  The Spectator does not allow anonymous comments and requires a valid email address.  The email address will not be displayed but will be used to confirm your comments.
