The Advocate has been serving the students and staff at Mt. Hood Community College, and other interested readers, for nearly 30 years. The weekly newspaper is produced entirely by students with the student staff numbering between 25-40 students each year. The Advocate is the official publication of the Associated Students of Mt. Hood Community College, although the student government plays no role in dictating policy and content of the publication. The Associated Student Government, through its annual budgeting process, provides partial funding of The Advocate, with the remainder of the operating revenue generated through advertising sales. Quarterly tuition waivers are provided for qualified members of the publications staff.
The Advocate strives to involve all segments of the college community in a fair and balance presentation of MHCC, and works toward the goal of being informative, timely, lively, relevant, compelling and thought-provoking.
