FAIRFIELD COUNTY, CT (PRWEB) April 4, 2005
An innovative campus watchdog group has been launched today (http://www.oncampus.therealitycheck.org) which seeks to foster greater transparency on college and University campuses on issues relating to academic freedom, bias and intellectual diversity.
The Reality Check "On Campus" is an independent new initiative developed by TheRealityCheck.org, Inc. (http://www.therealitycheck.org). The primary purpose of this group is to support and develop its growing network of on-site Campus Journalists, student activists and student groups nationally. Newsworthy issues and alerts originated by this network will be regularly published to an extensive national media audience. Campus Journalists have already been assigned to a number of colleges and universities throughout the country and the list continues to grow.
Campus Journalists, groups and participating student activists have access to extensive support resources to include event sponsorship, coordination and media training. A comprehensive web site has also been built which acts as s central access point for news, information and resources. The site incorporates the ability for the on-line submission of items for review and potential media distribution.
"Academic bias and lack of intellectual diversity have become a pandemic across our campuses," says TheRealityCheck.org President and On Campus Executive Director, Gary Schneider. "With this new initiative we have a real opportunity to build groundswell of participation and renewed activism that will engender the return to the academic mandate of free, fair and open debate and discourse at our colleges and universities."
University of North Carolina-Wilmington Professor, Author and Townhall Columnist, Mike Adams, says" I believe that 'The RealityCheck On Campus' will give a real voice to conservative students and student groups who have largely been marginalized as an intellectual force at their schools, or who have been subjugated (in the name of tolerance) by administrations and professors. This effort will help put lawless universities on notice."
