Negotiating the needs of students and the community at large can be a balancing act. Since many campus stations receive the bulk of their funding from student unions, stations are forced to justify their funding and existence on campus and face tensions with student politicians. As technology and the broadcasting industry evolves, staying relevant to students becomes more and more challenging. This session will discuss how to be accountable and responsive to student populations, how to negotiate student politics, and ideas for student outreach.
