The Student Media Council is currently accepting applications from students for council membership for the remainder of the 2022-2023 academic year.

About the Council

Student Media at the University of Utah has two primary missions: first, to engage, provoke, inspire and connect campus by telling the compelling stories of the University of Utah community; and second, to provide a hands-on experiential learning environment in media where students can put into practice skills and ideas from the classroom. Established in 2009 by the Board of Trustees, the Student Media Council oversees a student fee which helps support the Student Media department. Media platforms operated by the department are: The Daily Utah Chronicle, K-UTE Radio, Wasatch Magazine, The Geekwave, View From the U, OurStor1es, and AdThing, as well as a variety of other student driven media and journalism initiatives. The primary responsibility of council members is to ensure that student media entities on campus provide a meaningful undergraduate experience and vocational orientation, and operate in a fiscally responsible manner. By becoming a member of the Student Media Council, students, faculty, and industry professionals can play an active role in helping administer this student fee and provide valuable mentoring and advising to student media platforms on campus. Student voices on the council are vital in helping establish how Student Media grows and develops and best serves the campus community. For student members, a typical term is 2 years. Members are required to attend a monthly meeting (August through May). Currently, meetings are held through Zoom on the third Friday of the month at 8 a.m. Members will also be asked to review financial statements, applications for positions and funding and other documents via email, and possibly provide input to the rest of the Council via email. Occasional special meetings of the Council may also be called.
