THE NASHVILLE POST
Mar 21, 2008
Vanderbilt University launched a service to stimulate student readership of The New York Times and USA Today, in an effort to increase Vanderbilt's diversity and broaden students' awareness of the world beyond the campus. Mark Bandas, associate provost and dean of students, Vanderbilt Student Communications student media director Chris Carroll, VSC chair BRUCE BARRY said yesterday he has little doubt most faculty would encourage greater student news readership. Barry said he shares Carroll's concerns the program could "pose some risk to the viability of student media on campus," but warns the university should also "be cautious about the idea of subsidizing for-profit media, when it could be, at the same time, subsidizing student media." and Hustler editor in chief Elizabeth Middlebrooks is quoted, and former student body president Cara Bilotta was mentioned.
