What is the ASUC Publications and Media Board?

Publications and Media Board vs. Berkeley Student Media

Berkeley Student Media works hand-in-hand with the ASUC Chartered Program, the ASUC Publications and Media Board. The Board is part of the ASUC, while BSM is a University department. The Board advises Berkeley Student Media on the student media community's needs and can vote to engage BSM to manage its resources, such as ASUC-provided space allocations and funding.

How the the Publications and Media Board is Governed

The Board is led by a small group of students who are actively involved with both Berkeley Student Media and the broader publications & media community on campus.  The members of the Committee are elected by student media organizations' primary contacts, one member is chosen from among the Student Union Creative Programs student staff, and the ex-officio Chair of the committee is the Student Lead of the Publications and Media Center. The Steering Committee also comprises non-voting members, like the ASUC Executive Vice President, ASUC Chief Finanical Officer, and Student Union Creative Programs Coordinator. Elections for the at-large positions are held each spring. To learn more, read here.
