Wansolwara founding editor Stanley
Simpson and staff in the newsroom.
Wansolwara is a campus-based community newspaper
published by the Journalism Programme of the University of the South Pacific
and it is distributed free to readers as widely as economically possible.
It is a journalism training newspaper committed to freedom of information
and expression with the following purposes:
- To inform readers about issues affecting the university
and the South Pacific region through quality independent news reports,
feature articles and analysis.
- To promote good governance in the South Pacific region.
- To ensure coverage of the activities and concerns of
the relatively poor and powerless in the news and opinion articles.
- To inform the region of important media and information
developments, and to contribute to the debate of ethical and media issues.
- To offer practical information and advice to students
about community and academic life.
- To provide an outlet for members of the USP academe,
staff and students to communicate news and opinion about all tertiary
campuses and education in the region.
- To avoid denigrating any individual or group unless
the benefit to the general public from publishing such material exceeds
the hurt to the individual or group concerned.
- To pursue all these goals with a sense of humour, and
with a warm delight in the diversity of the region and its peoples.
