College Press Service (CPS) is a commercial news agency supplying stories to student newspapers.
It began as the news agency of the United States Student Press Association (USSPA). When USSPA suffered financial setbacks in the early 1970s, CPS was spun off and became a progressive alternative news collective in Denver, Colorado. It, too, later folded, selling its name to the commercial enterprise, and distributing the funds to progressive groups in Denver. In the mid-1960s, radical staff members of CPS split off from the United States Student Press Association and established Liberation News Service (LNS).
