Editorial policy

The Penn editorial opinion is determined by the Editorial Board, with the editor-in-chief having final responsibility. Opinions expressed in

editorials, columns, letters or cartoons are not necessarily that of The Penn, the university, the Student Cooperative Association or the student body. The Penn is completely independent of the university.

Letter policy

The Penn encourages its readers to comment on issues and events affecting the Indiana University of Pennsylvania community through letters to the editor.

Letters must be typed in a sans serif, 12-point font, double-spaced and no more than 500 words long.

Letters may not be signed by more than five people, and letters credited to only an organization will not be printed.

All writers must provide their signature, university affiliation, address and phone number for verification of the letter.

The Penn will not honor requests to withhold names from letters.

The Penn reserves the right to limit the number of letters published from any one person, from any one organization or about a particular issue.

The Penn reserves the right to edit or reject any letters submitted.

Submitted materials become the property of The Penn and cannot be returned.

Deadlines for letters are Sunday and Wednesday at noon for publication in the next issue.
