College Media Network [CMN] is the company that supports over 600 college newspaper websites and attends several college media conventions each year (look for the flashy booth and CMN track jacket clad staffers).

CMN is run by a group of passionate people who believe in the success of college media and the pursuit of journalism.  In fact, our mission is "to provide the best tools for digital publishing as possible – to raise the profile of college journalism as well as prepare student journalists for the commercial market".

We have several qualified individuals who consult, train and teach the best practices in digital publishing – these people are only a phone call or email away.  And behind these folks, CMN has marketing, design and development teams to support their efforts.
College Publisher [CP], on the other hand,  is the software that powers the sites in College Media Network. College Publisher is the brand of our software - much like Apple has iTunes.

College Publisher is a content management system [CMS] tailored exclusively to the needs of college newsrooms. The CMS, combined with partnerships with some of the nation's top media outlets and service providers, enable student newspapers to produce high quality professional looking news sites.

College Media Network has been in the college newspaper market for nearly a decade and has the unique perspective that help get newspapers through the challenges of running a website and publishing online.
