Fight for Truth on Your Campus

For more than 35 years, ISI’s Collegiate Network has supported independent college newspapers, magazines, and journals that report on important campus issues ignored by the mainstream media.

ISI Collegiate Network student journalists focus public awareness on the politicization of American college classrooms, curricula, and student life. They raise the level of discourse on campus and provide an outlet for students to keep university faculty and administrations honest.

ISI’s Collegiate Network supports more than 50 student-run publications across the country, including the Dartmouth Review, the UPenn Statesman, the Lone Conservative, and the Claremont Independent.

Find out how you can make an impact on your campus.
