This seems like a trustworthy article, it doesn't use click-bait, no ads, and credible academic sources. I don't think their "advocate" standpoint could be a bias because they're advocating for information and the right to know about the election, their president, and what they do or say. Unless they are specifically advocating for or against any politicians obviously. Wondering about who owns this site, I googled the guy who wrote it as well. He works for at the Patterson School Of Diplomacy and International Commerce which is a legit school.

The fact that a university

The fact that a university runs this site is promising. The fact that it may be written by a student makes the title feel less odd/out of place, and the lack of clickbait supports this. Seems like a decent source.

Seems Trustworthy

I agree with you that this website seems trustworthy and since it's run by a college, I would assume they'd have to keep a trustworthy image. To answer your question, I don't think they seem biased because they're advocating for the right information to be presented to the public. If they were advocating for a specific political issue, then that could make them biased.
