Governance of the Association is overseen by the Deputy Editor-in-Chief, in conjunction with the Board of Editors. 


At ANU Student Media we are committed to transparent and accountable governance and management. We want members to know what has happened and is going to happen at ANU Student Media so they can be informed and ask questions. You can find records of discussions had at the Board meetings and at our general meetings on our Minutes Page.


The majority of ANU Student Media’s funding originates from the Student Services & Amenities Fee (SSAF). As SSAF is paid by students, this means that ANUSM is funded and operated by students, for students. You can find Woroni‘s funding agreements, operating budgets and more details regarding our SSAF funding on our Financials Page.


The objects of the Association state that ANU Student Media will promote best practice in journalism, to this effect the Board has endorsed a number of ethical guidelines from media and entertainment industry leaders, and commits to following them in our activities. These handbooks cover a number of issue areas, applying to different aspects of Woroni‘s multiple platforms and productions. You can find further information about the adoption of the standards and about the guides themselves on our Ethical Media Standards Page.
