The VCU Student Media Center is dedicated to the support and encouragement of responsible, independent student media to connect, explore and enrich the lives of the university’s many constituencies. It operates on a model of individual responsibility and professional standards rather than one of censorship and administrative control. It encourages the values of integrity, tenacity, creativity and honesty in the pursuit of excellence.
