What is the Board?

How the Center and the Board Work Together

The Publications and Media Center works hand-in-hand with the ASUC Chartered Program, the Publications and Media Board. The Board is part of the ASUC, while the Center is a University department.

The Board advises the Center about the student media community's needs and can vote to engage the Center to manage its resources, such as ASUC-provided space allocations and funding. In the 2017-2018 year, the Board engaged the Center to manage both its budget and it's ASUC-allocated spaces. The Center reports to the Board on how it is utilizing their resources in service to the student media community.

How the the Board is Governed

Every registered student media organization's primary contact in CalLink is their voting representative on the ASUC Publications and Media Board. A student media organization's primary contact is their representative on the Board.

The Board is led by a 5-person Steering Committee.  Three members of the Committee are elected by student media organizations' primary contacts and two members are the hired Co-Directors of the Publications and Media Center. Elections are held each spring. To learn more, read here
