Letters policy

  • All letters to the editor of The Albright Reporter will be considered for publication. To be accepted for publication, a letter must meet one of the following criteria:
    • It relates to an article published in or issue discussed in The Albright Reporter.
    • It contains information of interest to all, or a segment of our readership (alumni, parents, donors, students, faculty and staff).
    • It relates to college news or policy.

Letters should be kept to 400 words or fewer. An editor’s note may be appended to a letter to clarify or correct the issue discussed in the letter or to explain university policy.

The Albright Reporter reserves the right to edit letters for clarity, correct grammar and punctuation, and length.

The Albright Reporter will not publish unsigned letters, or letters from individuals whose address and telephone number cannot be verified.

The Albright Reporter will not republish a letter that has appeared in The Albright Reporter or another publication in part or in whole.

The Albright Reporter also reserves the right to reject the following:

  • Anything that can be construed as libelous
  • A form letter
  • A letter endorsing a product or person
  • Profane, obscene, bigoted, inflammatory, or discriminatory material
  • Unintelligible prose
  • A vendetta against an individual, organization, or Albright College

Letters that proselytize will be printed at the editor’s discretion according to the guidelines stated above.

Ongoing discussions on religious beliefs, lifestyles, or other controversial issues will be discontinued after three consecutive issues.

Letters will be printed in the next edition of The Albright Reporter in which space is available. The editor has sole authority as to the timing of a letter’s publication.
