The persons hired for the top six positions are responsible for the operation of Campus Publications as a business and a publishing house. Everything from content, including news and opinion, to the business operations, including advertising and budget maintenance, is the responsibility of the publications executives.

The top managers are responsible for hiring all other staff members. Recruiting and interviewing begins after spring break. Watch the Trinitonian for announcements.
The eight-member Board of Campus Publications oversees the Campus Publications program. The preamble to the Board's charter acknowledges the University's commitment to the free exchange of student ideas and opinions and the University's recognition "that the student press has a fundamental right to determine the content of its own publications free from censorship and threat of reprisal, suspension, or removal from office. However, Trinity University also expects that the student press will conduct its business in a professional and responsible manner, adhering to the canons of journalism and business ethics."

The coordinator for student-edited publications, Katharine Martin, serves as liaison between the Board and Campus Publications staff and as adviser to the students employed by Campus Publications.
