Students Publication Board
Have this organization contact me.
The Students Publication Board meets once a month throughout the school year in the Freedom Forum Board Room at the Al Neuharth Media Center. The Pub Board is a 9-member board consisting of five students and four non-students. Each term is for two years. The Board's role is mainly fiduciary. We have a budget of $100,000 per year of which 30% is from student fees and the rest from ads. We hire three positions - Editor in Chief, Business Manager, and Advertising Manager. These three managers hire their respective staffs. The Pub Board does not get involved in the contents of The Volante. The Pub Board was established about 15 years ago when the Freedom Forum gifted one million dollars precipitating a legal agreement between the Freedom Forum, USD and Board of Regents that the students have editorial independence.
Students serving on the Pub Board must refrain from participation in Student Government Association and the Volante Staff in order to deter any conflicts of interest on the Board.
