September 17, 2009: Online Petition Drive Gains Steam

Sign the Petition

Word is out that College of the Canyons administration has shuttered the Canyon Call, a 40-year-old instrument of on-campus student free speech. Here are some of the most recent posts to the petition:

Genelle Belmas, Ph.D. — “Community college journalism is essential to educating the next generation of reporters, who are in turn essential for a successful self-governing democracy. Please bring back the Call.”

James Meier — “Newspapers are still extremely important teaching tools for journalism as well as many other fields to create well-rounded individuals.”

Dianne Heimer — “As a college faculty newspaper adviser, I urge you to reinstate the journalism program so your students can learn one of the most important tenets of higher education: how media inform citizens in a democracy.”

Please sign the online petition today and let your voice be heard.
