Thirteen one-year positions will be filled for the next academic year. Any student paying UPFF (University Program & Facility Fees) is eligible to serve on the council.
Deadline to apply is March 22.
Members meet monthly to help forge publication policy and approve budgets for the Daily Nebraskan and the Dailyer, as well as oversee the student fees used to support the printing of the two organizations. Additionally, the board is integral in choosing the editors of the publications each year.
