Society of Professional Journalists

A Thriving Student Organization

Get involved with the SPJ Auraria Chapter, a group of students who promote the First Amendment and seek opportunities for networking and developing partnerships with media leaders! You don't have to be a Journalism student; everyone is welcome to join!

SPJ is a professional organization that includes broadcast, print and online journalists, journalism educators, and students interested in journalism as a career.

It is the mission of the Society of Professional Journalists to

  • promote the flow of information.
  • maintain constant vigilance in protection of the First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and of the press.
  • stimulate high standards and ethical behavior in the practice of journalism.
  • foster excellence among journalists.
  • inspire successive generations of talented individuals to become dedicated journalists.
  • encourage diversity in journalism.
  • be the pre-eminent, broad-based membership organization for journalists.
  • encourage a climate in which journalism can be practiced freely.

The Society of Professional Journalists is dedicated to the perpetuation of a free press as the cornerstone of our nation and our liberty.
