Media

Media – Materials distributed to University Park students and expenses associated with the production of that content which aid an organization in completing their primary purpose.

UPAC will consider funding media expenses which aid an organization in completing their primary purpose. Media expenses include materials being distributed to University Park students and expenses associated with the production of that content. There are two types of Media Funding:

  • Broadcast Media: Includes broadcasting rights, liability insurance, software required for the production of digitally broadcasted media, hardware required to convert analog to digitally broadcasted media, hardware required to support the continued use of digitally broadcasted media, and any reparations required to sustain the maintenance of the specified hardware.
  • Print Media: Includes materials being distributed to University Park students and expenses associated with the production of that content (ex: magazines, newspapers, printed publications)
