Independent Collegian

The Independent Collegian is UT’s autonomous, student-run newspaper that traces its roots to 1919, when it was founded as The Universi-Teaser. In 1922, the name was changed to The Campus Collegian, which was shortened to The Collegian in 1962. In 2000, the newspaper terminated its legal and financial ties to the University, becoming The Independent Collegian. Today, it is published by the Collegian Media Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable, non-profit organization.

Students work at The Independent Collegian to gain marketable, real-world, on-the-job experience in covering news, researching, interviewing, writing, editing, newspaper design, and publishing. The Independent Collegian provides this experience in print journalism on UT’s campus, teaching students outside of a classroom setting the importance and value of independent print journalism.

We remain the only place on the UT campus teaching print journalism, and we champion its importance and survival.

The Independent Collegian has a rich tradition of covering news relevant to the entire University community, but most importantly, to UT students. The Independent Collegian publishes every other Wednesday during the fall and spring semesters and produces digital content weekly. During the summer, the staff distributes a special section for incoming freshmen and publishes breaking news online.

We want to continue a 99-year-old tradition: producing a student-run, student-published newspaper for The University of Toledo. Now, we need your help to do it.
