The Churchill Mallard is the student-run newspaper of Churchill College. The paper is exclusively written, edited and produced by JCR and MCR members of the College.
The paper was founded in 2020, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, as a way to bring Churchill together. Founding editor Rebecca Heath said, “With online lectures, social distancing and the cancellation of College events, 2020-21 will be a hard year for Churchill students. We wanted to found the newspaper to help maintain a sense of community – something that really shines at Churchill.”
The Churchill Mallard strives to be inclusive. All members of the JCR and MCR are encouraged to submit articles to the Editors. The paper is politically neutral.
