The Independent is Clark College’s official student newspaper. It is published online and in print on Wednesday every three weeks during fall, winter and spring quarters for Clark’s 16,000 students in addition to staff, faculty and the local community. Responsibilities for establishing news and deciding issues related to content rest solely with the student staff.
