A path lies ahead

Those responsible for previous volumes of The Tech set out on a path they felt would lead to a better newspaper. We who follow in their footsteps are aware of where they stumbled, and with the pitfalls in mind, we embark on Volume 105.

The Tech plans to build on the foundation established by previous volumes, with wider coverage and more in-depth evaluation of campus issues and events, and coverage of local, state, and national events affecting the MIT community. The task will not be an easy one. We must report in an unbiased, accurate, and ethical fashion.

Our opinion pages provide an open forum for the MIT community. To achieve a more balanced presentation of the ideas expressed, we welcome all viewpoints. Meaningful debate can only occur when all sides are represented. In our editorials we seek to maintain our ideals without fear of the consequences.

We are a student activity. We are committed to teaching our student staff the precepts of good journalism: writing, editing, production and business. We encourage the contributions of students. Only with your help can we achieve our goals.
