About Board Members
Board members represent the interests of undergraduate students at Vanderbilt and act as stewards of the nonprofit corporation Vanderbilt Student Communications Inc. and its divisions. Though board members are not expected to engage in the day-to-day operations of the divisions, they must connect with student leaders within VSC to maintain media quality and direct media strategy to meet changing student needs. A general understanding of Student Media at Vanderbilt, VSC’s structure and bylaws, VSC’s various divisions, and the media industry in general are useful. An ideal candidate will be self-motivated, willing to become actively engaged in mid- and long-term planning for the organization, and potentially interested in continuing in the fields of media and/or organizational management. Terms of office begin July 1 and end June 30 of their term's expiration year. The board will determine the term length for each new member, taking into consideration applicants’ availability. Board members typically meet for a two-hour period a few times during the academic year, although meeting duration and frequency may vary.
