We'll go farther together

As a standing University committee, the Student Media Board serves "as the institutional publisher" for Student Media.   

The SMB is primarily responsible for selecting student leaders, approving annual budgets and hearing any grievances that cannot be otherwise resolved. The SMB does not dictate or determine editorial content. Responsibility for day-to-day editorial operations belongs to the selected student leaders. The Director of Student Media is responsible for day-to-day business operations and long-term strategy for Student Media. 

The board consists of students, staff and faculty from across the university, as well as media professionals outside of KSU.
