Students employed by Student Media may not hold jobs that pose a conflict of interest. Such jobs may include working for competitors like Boyd Street, The Norman Transcript*, The Oklahoman*, working in political campaigns and holding political office. Other potential conflicts, such as working at Lindsey+Asp** or other media covering the OU community will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Consult your editor or the adviser if you are unsure about a potential conflict. As with other jobs, you should consult with the person you report to before taking on additional responsibilities that may interfere with your schedule.
* Exceptions may be made for content that is not covered by The Daily, including high school sports.
** No student working at Lindsey+Asp through the Gaylord practicum class or volunteering will be hired to work in Student Media’s Advertising office. Those students may be considered for editorial positions.
