The Promethean is the student newspaper for the University of Wisconsin-Superior campus and community. Our purpose is to serve the University in the capacity of the Press, to cover all important news which pertains to the students of the University of Wisconsin-Superior, both of news which occurs within the walls of the University and outside. It is charged with informing and making known the opinions of the student body, and succeeds the Peptomist and Stinger in this capacity. Although the medium we use to perform those duties has changed, we have always been, and always will be here for the students.

In its current form, the Promethean is an online newspaper and is also a physical newspaper that is printed every other week during school semesters.
