Student Involvement and Leadership

Student Media Overview

Pacific Lutheran University offers students the chance to engage the student population and enrich the campus climate with dialogue, debate, and entertainment. It is through involvement with Student Media that students implement and fine tune skills gained in the classroom. Students with any academic major can participate in Student Media.

PLU’s Student Media is advised by the Student Media Board, which consists of representatives from each Student Media group, a faculty representative, and two ASPLU appointed student representatives. A representative from Student Life, along with Student Media group advisers, attend meetings as nonvoting members. The Media Board meets once a month to discuss policy, budgeting, media events and collaborative projects.

Student Media Goals

The primary purposes of student media are:  1. To provide outlets for student writing, graphics, photography, video, digital technology, and audio; 
2. To provide for the exchange of information and opinions; 
3. To record life at PLU; 
4. To offer students a media experience in a professional setting; 5. To learn accepted standards of mass media in society as prescribed by The Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics.
