The Northern Star Publications Board shall consist of 11 voting members; the Northern Star advisor, ex officio nonvoting; the supervisor of the Northern Star advisor, ex officio nonvoting; and a representative of the University Legal Services, appointed by the president for a three-year term as an ex officio, nonvoting member.

    One administrator appointed by the president;

    Two members from the Student Association, selected by the Student Association;

    Two members from the Northern Star selected by the staff;

    One member from the student body elected by the board upon petition by students;

    Three members, appointed by the president, from the community-at-large who are not students, faculty, or staff members at Northern Illinois University, nominated by the University Council. These members shall be selected on the basis of their knowledge and expertise in business or publication, or both, without ties to local media.

    Student members shall serve one-year terms. Non-student voting members shall serve three-year staggered terms.

    The board shall elect its own chair.
