Michigan Journal | University of Michigan-Dearborn Archives
The Michigan Journal began publication in 1972 and continues today. It is one of the seven major student groups funded by the University. The paper covers campus events and expresses opinions on University policies and practices. It also includes images, cartoons, entertainment and sports coverage.
The Michigan Journal was preceded by other student papers, some of which are in the Archives PUBLICATIONS collection. These include the first student paper the Fairlane, published between January and May, 1962, the Dearborn Wolverine, published from November1963-January 1964, and the Ad Hoc, published from January 21, 1964-May 1967, and October 27, 1969-1972. The publication changed its name from Ad Hoc to the Michigan Journal in 1972. From 1981-1983, it was called the Journal, returning to the Michigan Journal in July 1983.
There were at least two African-American newspapers published on the University of Michigan-Dearborn campus of which there are two issues of the Black Emblem, published in 1975, and one issue of The Heritage produced in 1976.
