Every new school year marks big change. Whether you are just entering college or about to graduate, this change if allowed leads to great growth. I enter my second year as Editor-in-Chief of The Hope International Tribune and my senior year of college while introducing a new advisor. Welcoming Shannon Bates to our team as our advisor has opened up a new chapter for the staff. As a team and with guidance from our advisor we take this opportunity to reevaluate our role on campus.
The Hope International Tribune has always strived to serve and reflect the HIU community, this will never change. We hope to increase student involvement with the paper actively recruiting contributors and freelancers as one of our newest goals for this semester. It is important to us that the HIU community feels as though their opinions and voices are being heard and reflected in their campus publication.
We remain driven by accuracy and truth, doing our best to present a well-crafted publication on a biweekly basis. As a class, we learn and grow from community feedback encouraging our peers to reach out to us, whether it is concerning possible coverage, or a previous issue of the paper.
Although we have entered a period of rapid change within our staff, we refuse to let that hinder us from achieving or goals and serving the community. Every day we will learn a little more about what it takes to serve our community, we want you to be a part of our learning experience.
