Does your student media board work?

This session was all about student media boards, which we are currently trying to set up at NKU. Speaker Mark Goodman, former director of the Student Press Law Center, outline the three keys to success in a student media board.

  1. Well-defined responsibilities: Use explicit definitions when creating handbooks and board responsibilities.
  2. Composition: Need majority students, from all parts of campus, faculty, staff/administration, advisers and professionals.
  3. Motivation: Need regular meeting times to keep people motivated. Need training for all members of the board so everyone knows the importance and how the board works.

When continuing the process of creating the student media board, these keys will definitely play a part.
