Student Publication Board (SPB)

All Hawaiʻi Community College students pay publication fee when they enroll in the Fall and/or Spring semesters. Per University of Hawaiʻi’s Executive Policy 6.208 Mandatory Student Fees, this fee is used “to support and govern student publications such as the campus newspaper, literary magazines, e-publications, other print media, and related student advertising sales and promotions, affording students opportunities to write, edit, design, manage, do art, sell ads, conduct promotions, etc. that inform, educate and/or entertain the campus community.”

Hawaiʻi CC’s Student Publication Board (SPB) was established in the Fall 2020 semester when the student body ratified the Chartered Student Organization’s (CSO) Charter and By-laws. Prior to the establishment of the SPB, per Executive Policy 6.208 Mandatory Student Fees, the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs was responsible for the financial management of the funds within the Publication Fees account.
